“Leave no one behind: responding to long term development with less dependency on aid in humanitarian crisis: young people with disabilities as agents for change”
The Faculty of Technology, Design and Environment at Oxford Brookes University is pleased to offer a three-year, fully funded, full-time PhD studentship to a new student commencing in January 2019.
The successful candidate will work within the Centre for Development and Emergency Practice (CENDEP) under the supervision of Prof Cathrine Brun and her team and will collaborate closely with the Centre for Lebanese Studies (CLS) at the Lebanese American University (LAU) in Beirut, Lebanon.
Brief project description:
The sustainable development goals have the aim of leaving no-one behind. Based on CENDEP’s contribution to new guidelines for working with disability in humanitarian crises and its high levels of expertise in researching protracted refugee crises, the project seeks to explore new modes of increasing participation among persons with disabilities in Lebanon and the Middle East. For this purpose, we are calling for applicants who will conduct a doctoral research project on the theme of young people with disabilities as agents for change in the context of the current refugee crisis in Lebanon. A comparative project (with another country) could be accepted.
The PhD candidate will be working on this project part of a Disability Hub which Oxford Brookes University and the Centre for Lebanese Studies at LAU are in the process of establishing in Lebanon. The objective of the Disability Hub is to develop and implement a research and advocacy strategy into issues around disability, participation and representation of disabled persons in general but more specifically, those of a refugee and migrant background.
We expect that the successful candidate is willing to spend considerable time in Lebanon to conduct fieldwork in collaboration with the CLS.
We are seeking candidates with:
