Call for commissioned research on Illegal fisheries in Eastern and Southern Africa
The Institute for Security Studies (ISS) Cape Town based Corruption & Governance Programme is seeking researchers/investigative journalists to produce reports on the problem of over-fishing in selected countries in East and Southern Africa. This will be integrated into a final publication, due to be released in November 2007.
The reports will involve exploring what is known about the scale and nature of illegal, unregulated or unreported fishing and the weakness to the regulation of this sector. Consultants will have two months to research these issues and provide a final report of between 6000 and 8000 words. The authors are encouraged to undertake field research and not only rely on published sources.
Reports are wanted for the following countries: Kenya, Tanzania, Mozambique, Mauritius, Madagascar, South Africa, Namibia, Angola.
The deadline for the submission of the commissioned reports is September 14th. The ISS will pay a fee of ZAR20,000 (twenty thousand South African Rands) all inclusive.
Interested applicants must please send a short covering letter, updated CV, two samples of their recent publications and a reference by no later than 28th June.
Successful candidates will be notified by no later than July 7th 2007.
Please contact André Standing at the ISS to receive a detailed background paper on the subject, including instructions for commissioned researchers.
