EFR Involve Consultancy Project 2024

Have you always been interested in making a social impact? And are you interested in taking part in a consultancy project abroad? Then sign up for the Involve Consultancy Project 2024!

We will apply our academic knowledge to conduct research for an NGO. The project consists of three months of desk research (April-June), and two weeks of field research abroad (beginning of August). This year we are collaborating with the UN ECOSOC Global Human Rights Defence and will travel to Bangladesh for 2 weeks! You will do this together with 20 bachelor-3 and master’s students. You can receive 4 ECTS for the Involve consultancy project! The preliminary (desk) research will take approximately 8-10 hours a week.

The focus of our project is to conduct an analysis of western media bias in the coverage of the Bangladeshi genocide and its impact on economic factors. To achieve this, we will conduct interviews with Bangladeshi and Pakistani citizens.

The Involve Consultancy Committee is looking for ambitious third-year bachelor and master’s students to be part of our Involve team. We aim to set up a diverse and motivated team of researchers to ensure that all different perspectives are represented in our research, and GHRD will be presented with a high quality final project.

To get a better idea of the project, and meet the GHRD team we will be collaborating with, we will kick-off the Involve Project by visiting the GHRD office in the Hague!

As a team member, you will get the opportunity to improve your research, writing, interviewing, and consultancy skills. Furthermore, you will get to know 19 other bright ESE students and travel to a foreign country as part of the research.

Are you curious about the project, our timeline, and activities at our field trip destination? Make sure to join our information drinks on March 14th from 16:00-19:00 in the EFR office (G-building, room GB-46)! You will get the opportunity to ask us all your questions about the project. If you have any questions after that, feel free to email us at involve@efr.nl. The extended application deadline is Tuesday, March 19th, 23:59!

Price: Because the project includes field research in a foreign country, we ask for a participant contribution. This contribution will lie around €850-950 per person.
