Call for Peer Reviewers, Africa Integrity Indicators
Source of the information:
Global Integrity is embarking on a five-year collaboration with the Mo Ibrahim Foundation to generate original data on a range of governance issues across all 54 African countries. This data will strengthen future iterations of theIbrahim Index of African Governance, an index based on four main categories: Safety and Rule of Law; Participation and Human Rights; Sustainable Economic Opportunity; and Human Development.
We are excited to report that in May we launched the Africa Integrity Indicators (AII) in 52 countries using the Indaba fieldwork platform. Undertaking research of such magnitude has its challenges, such as the inequality of access to Internet and in some cases electricity shortages on the continent, but we have now connected with and trained all 52 lead researchers from our Cape Town office.
We are now moving into the next phase of the project, finalizing our peer reviewer recruitment. The call for contributors has been reopened for peer reviewers, but if you applied previously there is no need to reapply. Reviewers (both national and regional) are qualified experts who will review the draft indicators and provide critical commentary to strengthen the final data for each country. All contributing experts will use Global Integrity’s easy-to-use web-based platform (the Indaba fieldwork platform) for submitting and reviewing content.
If you are interested, please apply online no later than 30 June 2012 by visitinghttp://www.tfaforms.com/217820. All contributing team members will be compensated for their participation in the fieldwork.
