Arab Migrant Communities in the GCC
Request for Proposals: Arab Migrant Communities in the GCC
The Center for International and Regional Studies (CIRS) at the Georgetown University School of Foreign Service in Qatar announces a major research initiative designed to enhance our understanding of Arab Migrant Communities in the GCC.
Despite the increasing dominance of Asian migrants to the region, current estimates are that there are still roughly 4 million non-Gulf Arabs residing in the GCC states. The Arab migrant communities present in the Gulf have been a neglected area of research that merits further scholarly discussion and focus. With this in mind, CIRS seeks to stimulate the collection of reliable data and the production of sound analysis, with the goal of exploring questions related to the topic using empirically-grounded, theoretically informed research. Funding priority will be given to projects that propose original research.
The maximum amount per grant award is US $10,000 to be used over one year. Researchers interested in applying should send a cover letter and detailed research proposal that conforms to the guidelines outlined in the Request for Proposals section on the CIRS website (http://cirs.georgetown.edu/325444.html).
Proposal submissions are due January 15, 2013. For inquiries and grant application submissions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please share this note with faculty members at your institution and with others interested in this area of research.
