Reporting directly to the Director of the Nkafu Policy Institute, Research & Policy Fellows will be expected to publish in-depth, peer-reviewed articles and engage policy stakeholders, through various forums, in promoting research outputs. They will participate fully in ongoing IDRC-funded research on social entrepreneurship, women’s economic empowerment and gender equality. They will co-organize and participate in public events and work with the larger research staff at Nkafu.
