The Global Development is recruiting reviewers to conduct the assessment of research proposals for the 2019 edition of the Global Development Awards Competition. This edition will feature the Japanese Award for Outstanding Research on Development. The winner of the current round will be chosen by an eminent jury at the 19th Global Development Conference 'Knowledge for Sustainable Development: the Research–Policy Nexus', to be held in Bonn, Germany, between the 21st and 23rd of October 2019; an event attended by international development practitioners where finalists will present their proposals. Finalists will be invited to present their proposals at the conference after a training in communication and public speaking.
The review will take place in two phases:
- Lot 1: First level review
Reviewers will be selected to conduct a first assessment of proposals on the basis of the ORD selection criteria and shortlist the best proposals. Selected reviewers will receive proposals to review under one sub-theme of the competition, according to their background and preferences.
- Lot 2: Expert panel review
Experienced researchers will be invited to constitute panels to review the shortlisted proposals, and select the three finalists of the ORD category. Selected experts will receive proposals to review under one-sub-theme of the competition, according to their background and preferences. The final decision will be colloquial between the expert panels.
