Seeking Research Assistant - Experiential learning methodologies for human rights and humanitarian action

September 9, 2019

In collaboration with the Centre of Competence on Humanitarian Negotiation (CCHN) and the Harvard Humanitarian Initiative (HHI), the Carr Center for Human Rights Policy is looking for the support of a research fellow to undertake a review of literature and preliminary research on experiential learning methodologies in the context of human rights and humanitarian action.

This research takes place as the three organisations are developing a more systematic approach to the use of experiential models in building the capacity of graduate students and mid-career professionals in addressing current issues in complex environments. The product of the research will inform the planning of a professional roundtable in early 2020.

The candidate should have a definite interest in experiential learning methodologies as well as the human rights humanitarian action fields. The work will take place in close collaboration and dialogue with the three organisations. It is expected to require up to 10 hours/ week for a period of up to 3 months.
