**Please forward to relevant potential applicants**


We are issuing a call for funded case studies: critical analyses of urban data in the global South that will help build the evidence base on “data justice”; particularly relating to those living in slums and informal settlements.


We are seeking proposals of 500-1,000 words by Friday 23 Nov 2018.  Those selected will be published as working papers and build an agenda for future research.  We will seek opportunities to publish the collection as a journal special issue, and for papers to be presented at a project workshop.  A payment of £2,500 per case will be made, with the case studies forming part of a Senior Research Fellowship funded by the University of Manchester’s Sustainable Consumption Institute.


For further details on the background, required case study, proposal format, and timetable, see the main call document.


If you have any questions, do ask.  This call is also available at: https://www.cdi.manchester.ac.uk/about/news/

This mailing is for those we believe have a legitimate interest in the “Urban Data, Inequality and Justice in the Global South” research project.  If you wish to receive no further details on the project’s research calls, findings, events, collaboration opportunities, etc, reply to this message with the subject line: Unsubscribe.
