RFP: Evaluation of Radio La Benevolencija's Media for Dialogue Program in Burundi, DRC, and Rwanda

Michigan State University is seeking to contract a research organization to conduct an impact evaluation of Radio La Benevolencija’s “Media for Dialogue” (M4D) program in Burundi, Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), and Rwanda. The evaluation will focus on the effects of exposure to different components of M4D’s media programming affect knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors regarding scapegoating, hate speech, and other forms of discrimination.

Proposals from organizations that can work in all three countries are preferred, but proposals covering research activities in only one or two of the focus countries will also be reviewed.

The full RFP can be accessed here: https://bit.ly/2Qwn2Oi


The activities of the evaluation will include:

1. Laboratory experiment, to measure effects of a national radio drama, in Burundi (localities within Bubanza & Cibitoke Provinces) (N=550)
2. Laboratory experiment, to measure effects of a national radio drama, in DRC (localities within Sud-Kivu Province, between Kalangala in the north and Kazima in the south, and within forty (40) kilometers from DRC’s eastern border) (N=550)
3. Laboratory experiment, to measure effects of a national radio drama, in Rwanda (localities within Nyamasheke and Rusizi Districts) (N=550)
4. Laboratory experiment, to measure effects of anti-hate speech radio program, in Burundi (localities in Bubanza, Bujumbura Mairie, Bujumbura Rurale, and Cibitoke Provinces) (N=750)
5. Laboratory experiment, to measure effects of anti-hate speech radio program, in DRC (localities within Sud-Kivu Province, between Kalangala in the north and Kazima in the south, and within forty (40) kilometers from DRC’s eastern border) (N=750)
6. Laboratory experiment, to measure effects of anti-hate speech radio program, in DRC (localities within Kinshasa Province) (N=550)
7. Field experiment, to measure effects of short radio sketches, in Burundi (localities within Bubanza & Cibitoke Provinces) (N=200)
8. Field experiment, to measure effects of short radio sketches, in Rwanda (localities within Nyamasheke & Rusizi Districts) (N=200)

Interested organizations should have significant experience conducting high-quality survey work, including demonstrated best practices in protection of human subjects. Participants in all studies will be recruited via convenience sampling, rather than through household surveys. Past work in Great Lakes Region essential, with demonstrated ability to work in one or more focus countries. Experience with experimental designs is not necessary, but staff must follow appropriate protocols with regard to randomization.

This request for proposals is aimed at established research and data-collection organizations. Given the number of staff that will be required to complete the study, individual researchers should not apply.

The target time period for the research is between late October and mid-December 2018.

The deadline for applications is 5 PM EST U.S. on October 1, 2018.
