Webinar on Social Protection in Fragile Contexts

Tilman Brück is a speaker in the webinar on Social Protection in Fragile Contexts, hosted by UNICEF’s Office of Research – Innocenti on 8 November 2017.

One of the key commitments under the Grand Bargain revolves around increasing social protection programmes as mechanisms for humanitarian action, including with a specific commitment on building evidence on their benefits and impacts. Drawing on established research under the ‘Transfer Project’ and from recent initiatives in fragile and displacement contexts, UNICEF’s Office of Research – Innocenti will be hosting an online event to contribute findings and lessons as part Humanitarian Evidence Week 2017. Bringing together in-house experts, field practitioners, and researchers from academia, the discussion will present recent efforts and findings from conducting impact evaluations of social protection programmes in emergencies, discuss research designs, and share lessons from challenges and opportunities to scale-up research efforts and contribute in building the body of evidence on social protection in fragile contexts.


Speakers:

– Jose Cuesta
– Jacob de Hoop
– Tilman Bruck, ISDC
– Hannah Ring, American Institutes of Research

Webinar will start at 15:00 CET 8 November 2017 – Registration form is available here.
