The U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights and Labor (DRL) announces an open source competition for organizations interested in submitting proposals for a research project that supports the following goal: Contribute to building a portfolio of evidence to further identify democracy and rights program strategies that are effective, in an effort to improve program relevance and impact.
Projects should support the following objective: Provide evidence on how DRL can support citizens in engendering support from security forces – and what external factors make such support more or less likely – in repressive environments.
DRL welcomes applications from U.S.-based and foreign-based non-profit organizations/nongovernment organizations (NGO) and public international organizations; private, public, or state institutions of higher education; and for-profit organizations or businesses. DRL’s preference is to work with non-profit entities; however, there may be some occasions when a for-profit entity is best suited.
