The full Scope of Work and RFA can be requested from MadaniRFA@fhi360.org. Reference “National Intolerance Study” in the subject line.
This present Request for Application provides the context and scope of work for a larger nation-wide study of how rising social intolerance in Indonesia is impacting universal access to basic public services, specifically healthcare, education and administrative population services, as well as to civil liberties such as the right to assembly and freedom of expression. Recent conservative and populist trends in Indonesia risk negatively affecting universal access to basic services and opportunity, and limit the freedoms of speech and assembly. The proposed study will provide an evidence base for what is happening, and improve our understanding of the conceptual relationship between religious conservatism, intolerance and discrimination. It will consist of a large nation-wide survey, key-informant interviews, expert group discussions, and ethnographic case-studies in selected districts.
The RFA will cover a period of 30 months and covers two surveys: one in late 2021 and one repeat survey in mid-2023, with tracking studies in-between. The winning applicant will be provided a multi-year subaward that consists of two main components: (1) the Phase One study (15 months) with survey and case studies detailed below; and (2) a Phase Two repeat survey in 2023 and quarterly surveillance/monitoring of 12 districts to be decided based on the analysis of the findings from Phase One.
Applicants must submit the technical application and budget to MadaniRFA@fhi360.org by 18.00 pm (Jakarta time) on July 30, 2021. In the submission email, reference “Intolerance Study” in the subject line.
Any questions concerning this scope of work should be submitted in writing to MadaniRFA@fhi360.org no later than July 22 30, 2021 at 10.00 am (Jakarta time). Answers to questions will be provided in writing.
