As part of the Inclusive and Accountable Politics grant from the Foreign Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO), WFD has been running a programme in Kyrgyzstan for several years. It is working at a local level and seeks to strengthen women’s political leadership and improving oversight by local councils.
As part of the programme, WFD will conduct research into citizen trust in local government in Kyrgyzstan between January and March 2021 and is looking for a consultant researcher to lead this.
The aim of the first phase is to review quantitative data on citizen trust, already collected by international organisations and the Kyrgyz government. The researcher will conduct analysis of this data to determine the current trends in citizen trust in local government.
For the second phase, the researcher will respond to the findings of the first phase. They will design qualitative analysis that interrogates trends and delves deeper into the questions raised by the quantitative analysis. This is likely to involve focus group discussions and key informant interviews in the some or all of the localities that WFD works, Karakol, Balykchy, Batken and Naryn. It will likely include research with local authorities (representative and executive), CSOs and citizens.
Proposals can come from individuals but also teams of experts, NGOs, consultancy firms, universities, etc. The selected contractor shall demonstrate proven experience in the areas outlined in the terms of reference.
