CALL FOR TENDERS – Qualitative Research on the Lived Realities of LBQ Migrants, POC, and Ethnic/Religious Minorities

EL*C is launching a call for tenders for services related to a research project on the lived experiences of Black LBQ women and people, women/people of color, Roma women/people, and Central Asian women/people (especially those living in Europe), as well as individuals marginalized due to racial markers related to religion or ethnicity, in addition to their gender and sexual orientation.

To ensure a diversity of viewpoints, three different tender procedures are being conducted, each focusing on different areas/lived experiences, with the objective of creating a team of researchers with complementary skills (hereafter referred to as “the team of researchers”). One application per person in the areas where you have the strongest expertise is recommended.

We are looking for candidates with:

  • Demonstrated intersectional feminist background

  • Good understanding of the lived experiences of LBQ migrants, POC, and ethnic/religious minorities
  • Excellent data analysis skills, especially in qualitative data analysis
  • Demonstrated experience in the implementation of qualitative data collection tools
  • Strong organizational, interpersonal, and project management skills
  • Sense of initiative and ability to be self-supporting, including the ability to deliver under pressure and within tight deadlines
