From FM List

UNHCR's Policy Development and Evaluation Service (PDES) would like to hear from anyone who would be interested in undertaking a research project on 'Witchcraft, witchcraft allegations and human displacement'. The purpose of the project is (a) to collect and analyze the available evidence on the issue of witchcraft in refugee, returnee and IDP settings; (b) to ascertain the extent to which this issue is an important protection concern: (c) to determine what steps UNHCR and its partners can take to address the problem. The results of the research will be published in the UNHCR series, 'New Issues in Refugee Research'. Unfortunately, UNHCR is not in a position to provide funding for this project, which would make an ideal topic for a Master's dissertation.

If you are interested, please write to crisp@unhcr.org
