Everyday Peace Indicators (EPI), Sri Lanka. Deadline: 20 December 2021.
Everyday Peace Indicators (EPI) is engaged in a long-term research project in Sri Lanka that aims to build knowledge about local understandings and dynamics of reconciliation. Specifically, we are working with the US Institute of Peace (USIP) and the Social Scientists’ Association (SSA) to gather data about perceptions of peace and reconciliation in 30 communities throughout Sri Lanka to inform the Social Cohesion and Reconciliation (SCORE) Activity funded by USAID. As outlined on our website, EPI uses a unique, participatory approach called Everyday Peace Indicators.
After a significant pause due to COVID-19, EPI will reinitiate its on-the-ground activities in Sri Lanka in early 2022. As such, EPI requires a project coordinator to manage local activities, assist with qualitative and quantitative research, and liaise with partner organizations and EPI staff in the USA. The EPI coordinator will be hired on a one-year fulltime contract with the possibility of extension, pending satisfactory performance. Project guidance will be provided by Professor Pamina Firchow from Brandeis University and Dr. Leslie MacColman from the Ohio State University.
