The International Rescue Committee Cameroon (IRC) and UC Berkeley Human Rights Center HRC are seeking,

Background/ Context

The UC Berkeley Human Rights Center (HRC) is partnering with the International Rescue Committee (IRC) on a research study on cash assistance programs in humanitarian settings to generate evidence on the protection risks and barriers associated with the targeting and delivery of cash to vulnerable groups.

This two-year project involves two phases of research. During the first phase of the research, the research team will conduct qualitative research in Cameroon to explore the full range of protection risks faced by two or three selected vulnerable groups, which may include (but are not limited to) female-headed households, older persons, persons with disabilities, persons with limited or lack of legal status and/or identity, or persons from ethnic minority groups. Field research in Cameroon will take place in March 2018.

Data collection will include key informant interviews (approximately 8-12) with key stakeholders in cash assistance and protection programs, interviews with cash assistance recipients (approximately 10-15 interviews), and focus groups with cash assistance recipients (approximately 8 focus groups of 8-10 participants per group).

IRC and HRC will use evidence gathered from the first phase of the research to develop a comprehensive and adaptable tool. The research will be used to inform a toolkit, which practitioners in humanitarian settings can use to plan and implement cash assistance programs. In the second phase, IRC will pilot the toolkit within a cash transfer program in one country, and HRC will conduct operational research to adapt and validate the tool.

IRC and HRC are recruiting a Quality Assurance Supervisor to work with HRC and IRC to oversee field research in March 2018 and provide support as needed after completion of the field research.
