The Joseph Rowntree Foundation has recently issued calls for bids for two projects on globalisation, UK poverty and communities. Both projects offer funding of up to £50,000 over 8 months (projects to finish in November 2010).
The first, Impacts of external conflict and local politics on UK communities, aims to examine the ways that conflict and politics outside of the UK impact on communities and individuals in the UK. It will explore experiences, trends, impacts and local responses.
The second, Experiences of globalisation, aims to examine experiences of globalisation at the individual, household and community levels in the UK. We are interested to investigate who and how people are experiencing the inter-connectedness globalisation brings, who and how people are taking advantage of new opportunities and what new challenges people are facing as a result of globalisation.
The deadline for applications to both projects is Feb 25th. For more details, go to the Foundation website at: http://www.jrf.org.uk/
