# Job Description

Position Detail: Research Assistant on BA GCRF funded project
Project Title: Developing resilience and enterprising opportunities for
internally displaced women in Ethiopia and Zambia

Project Abstract: Volatility due to persistent poverty, political
instability, social tensions, and natural disasters severely affect rural
areas and contribute to rural-urban migration and internal displacement in
Africa. Women suffer disproportionately in such contexts and are also
extremely vulnerable to economic effects of Coronavirus pandemic. How can
entrepreneurship by women provide the agency to alleviate these multiple
problems in such contexts? This interdisciplinary research project seeks to
bring novel insights from the hitherto underexplored contexts of Ethiopia and
Zambia on how the internally displaced and rural-urban migrated women
experience urban living, enterprising opportunities, and the development of
urban resilience. The project aims to contribute to a holistic understanding
of women’s entrepreneurship that helps to address the challenges of inequality
faced by women SDG 5, enhance their economic contributions SDG 8, reduce
poverty SDG 1, support the disadvantaged SDG 10, and develop sustainable
communities SDG11 in the contexts of Ethiopia and Zambia.

Research Themes: This project is at the intersection of two Research
Themes: Cities, urbanisation, urban settlements, informality, urban living
and practices, urban governance, urban infrastructure; and, conflict,
insecurity, human dignity, disaster, risk, crisis. These themes are relevant
to this research project as it seeks to examine how rural-urban migrated and
internally displaced women experience urbanisation and urban living, develop
coping strategies, engage in entrepreneurial activities, and develop urban
resilience. The project aims to make a difference in relation to policy and
interventions on the socio-economic conditions of the migrant and displaced
African women to develop their capabilities to adapt to urban living
conditions and to address equalities of opportunities.
