Research Fellow sought for research project on LGBTI political participation in South Africa

Gay & Lesbian Victory Institute and Triangle Project (South Africa) are looking for a fellow in Triangle’s Research, Advocacy and Policy Programme for a 6-month contract (which may be renewed subject to funder commitments and performance) to produce a research publication on political participation of LGBTI people in South Africa.
Triangle Project (Triangle) and the Gay & Lesbian Victory Institute (Victory) are commissioning this report as part of their work to learn how to increase political participation of LGBTI (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, and intersex) people in South Africa.
The overall purpose of the research paper is to have an overview of the current situation of the political participation of LGBTI people in South Africa and identify entry points for this work with political parties and State institutions, to help inform our work.
The majority of the research will rely on qualitative research methods, including semi-structured interviews. The consultant will also implement a media analysis of instances when political participation of LGBTI citizens is mentioned in the media in South Africa. The gathered information will help the consultant, as well, to draw some quantitative conclusions and trends.
The consultant will also be reviewing existing reports and literature. The research product will be a report about political participation of LGBTI people in South Africa, no less than 12,000 words.
Applicants are required to send a letter of interest, methodology on the approach and implementation of the assignment, personal CV of personnel proposed for this project, 3 work references with contact details and financial proposal indicating consultancy fee and breakdown of expenses.
