HUMAN RIGHTS RESEARCH ON THE RIGHT TO PROTEST: 

Expressions of interest invited from experienced human rights researchers 

 

_________________________________________________________________________Contract Duration: May – September 2021  

Application Deadline: 10 May 2021 

Reporting to: Research Coordinator 

Application contact: [email protected] 

Background: 

Protest plays an important part in all societies, enabling individuals and groups to express dissent and  grievances, to share views and opinions, to expose flaws in governance and to publicly demand  government accountability and change. Across the world, people are protesting in increasing  numbers, on the streets and online, even though the global pandemic. But this rise has been met by  an increase in crackdowns on protests, from brutal repression to legal and policy measures that  criminalise protest and seek to deter, prevent or obstruct protests. This is compounded by a culture  of impunity for those who violate the protesters’ human rights. Different sectors of public opinion,  including some mainstream media are portraying protests and protesters as either an inconvenience  to be controlled or a threat to be extinguished, instead of sensitising societies about how their rights  are being infringed. 

ARTICLE 19’s work empowering individuals and communities to demand their rights to participate in  civic space and demand accountability is a fundamental step in shifting narratives on protests in a  positive direction. Based on our current work, ARTICLE 19 will develop a dynamic global campaign on  the right to protest. This campaign seeks to build on the learnings from our previous campaigns on  the right to protest in Brazil and Kenya, and look further into stigma by bringing an understanding of  the impact discrimination and exclusion have on the way that authorities respond to protests, the  media covers protest and the public respond and support protest. The campaign seeks to make this  visible and support the voices of those most targeted, at risk and excluded.  

To ensure that our global campaign is evidence based and locally owned, ARTICLE 19 will carry out  research on stigma and discrimination of protesters- both online and offline- in a number of countries.  For this reason, we are seeking either a research agency or a group of consultants to support this task.

Purpose: 

ARTICLE19 is looking for research agency or a group of researchers that can conduct research in the following countries- Mexico, Tunisia, Brazil, Kenya, Thailand, Poland, Senegal, and USA. We are  also accepting applications from consultants that have experience in one or several of the above  countries. The agency/researcher(s) will present their methodology to research how stigma and  discrimination against protest and protesters plays a role in how authorities respond to them. They  will need to follow ARTICLE19 research guidelines. The research should include in-depth interviews  with people who experience discrimination around protests and documentation of eyewitness  accounts. The agency/researcher(s) will also need to collect 4 emblematic case studies per country  using our case study guidelines. The agency/ researcher(s) will work closely with a Senior  Campaigner to ensure that all case information is well documented for the campaign.  

The agency/researcher(s) will ensure that the methodologies are applied in target countries, provide  feedback and support to ARTICLE 19 regional offices when necessary, consolidate data and write a  research report. The objective of the report is to demonstrate patterns of discrimination and stigma  of protesters in each country and to present cases of discrimination of certain groups of protesters  in law and practice. The report should include recommendations for governments in target  countries. 

Target Countries: Mexico, Tunisia, Brazil, Kenya, Thailand, Poland, Senegal, and USA Audience and Use:  

  • Communities in the target countries that experience stigma when protesting  ● Communities in target countries that avoid protests because of stigma and discrimination on  protests in the media and by law enforcement
