Involve consultancy project

During the EFR Involve consultancy project, 20 students get the chance to apply their academic knowledge to practice and to make a positive sustainable impact on communities that need it the most. In partnership with the NGO Free Press Unlimited (FPU), you will perform three months of desk research, three weeks of field research abroad, and present your findings and suggestions to the partner in September.

This year, the project focuses on Free Press Unlimited's “Theory of Change” which illustrates how a righteous and peaceful society can be reached through the power of media tools and the freedom of expression. You will be investigating to what extent the causal relations of this theory of change are in line with evidence generated through internal and external research.  For the field research, students will split in 2 groups, with 10 students going to Indonesia and 10 heading to Nepal.

Currently, the Involve consultancy committee is looking for ambitious third-year bachelor and master students to be part of the Involve team. Students from all backgrounds of Erasmus University Rotterdam can apply for the project, as the committee is looking for a truly diverse team of researchers. Feel free to send an email to in order to ask your questions!
