Call for Papers on Social Protection in Contexts of Fragility and Forced Displacement

This call for papers aims to assemble high quality papers that will increase our understanding of: 1) the role of social protection in fragile contexts and settings of forced displacement and migration; and 2) synergies across the humanitarian and development divide in both contexts. The aim is to assemble 8 to 10 papers of sufficient quality to be jointly submitted for a special issue to the Journal of Development Studies, or featured in an edited book. Reviewed and approved papers will also be featured in the UNICEF Office of Research–Innocenti working paper series.

Some submissions are expected to draw on evidence presented at an International Conference focusing on the same themes organized by UNICEF, the European Commission and partners to take place in July 2017 in Brussels, Belgium. It is expected that these papers and others coming from outside the conference will include quantitative and mixed methods work, focusing on diverse social protection research resulting in policy-relevant lessons for governments, humanitarian and development actors, and the larger donor and stakeholder communities.

Extended abstracts can be submitted to Guest Editors (proposed length of 1,000 words) by email: jdehoop@unicef.org by 15 July 2017. Please see the full call for papers.
