The Danish Institute for Human Rights (DIHR) is organizing the Research Partnership Programme on human rights with the funding support of the Danish International Development Assistance (DANIDA) for a small number (4-6) of researchers from developing and transitional countries.
The Programme offers a unique opportunity for selected researchers of becoming guest researchers at DIHR in Denmark for a period of five months during the semester August to December 2011.
The aim of the Programme is to build human rights research capacity in these countries, and in general to contribute to stronger academic environments and increased exchange between institutions in the human rights field internationally.
Please note that the DIHR does not issue an academic degree. However, the study may give academic credit if it is carried out as part of academic studies, e.g. PhD. or other doctoral studies with another institution, and such linking is encouraged.
The Programme is primarily for persons who have experience in human rights-related research and/or work. The minimum requirement for applying is a bachelor’s degree and preference will be given to those possessing a master’s degree or equivalent qualifications. The applicant must be professionally affiliated to an institution (NGO, university, etc.) in a developing or transitional country. It is of utmost importance that the applicant is fluent in spoken as well as written English.
Expenses in relation to accommodation, insurance and international flights will be covered by the grant. Moreover, the guest researcher will be given an adequate amount per month to cover living expenses in Denmark. The guest researchers are accommodated at the Danida Fellowship Centre (DFC) in central Copenhagen.
Applications for the coming academic year (August-December 2011) should be received at the DIHR no later than 1st of February 2011. For more information, visit this link.
