Funding opportunity: East Africa Community economic integration

Scholars who are investigating regionalism and development in Africa might be interested in the opportunity offered by the Department for International Development (DFID) of the Government on the United Kingdom:

“Literature review and feasibility study on approaches to assess poverty impacts of the East Africa Community economic integration”
DFID wishes to commission a literature review and feasibility study on approaches to assess poverty impacts of the East Africa Community (EAC) economic integration over a period of eight months.

The main objective of this feasibility assessment is to:

  • understand experiences of regional economic communities in relation to poverty reduction from elsewhere in the world
  • explore lessons learned that can be applied to maximise the benefits of the EAC customs union and common market on poverty reduction
  • identify a robust quantitative method to analyse the short, medium and longer-term potential country winners and losers of the EAC customs union and common market; and the impact on poverty

Interested parties should submit Expressions of Interest of no more than 4 pages by 2pm UK time on the 27 March 2015.
