Detail of Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS) Research Assistant Recruitment:
Tata Institute of Social Sciences(TISS) is currently initiating a research project on ‘Ethnic Power Relations (EPR) and Conflict in Fragile States’, as part of an international project. The primary objective of the study will be to identify the role of formal organizations, including political organizations, in representing the political interests of specific ethnic groups. Recent empirical studies have shown that political and economic inequalities along ethnic lines increase the risk of ethnic conflict. However, while existing research convincingly links inequalities to conflict, we know much less about the important processes of collective action and group mobilization that lie in between these two variables, i.e. about the organizational actors that translate ethnic grievances into political actions, be they peaceful or violent. And, this is the focus of EPR study that TISS is now undertaking. We are looking for a ‘Research Assistant’ to work on contract basis from TISSMumbai, initially for a period of six months (with possibility of subsequent extension in the same position subject to satisfactory performance)
