Research results can often exist for years with little to no significant impact on practice. We want to put existing research to work by utilizing it to develop real and innovative solutions to organisational problems.
Due to vastly different social contexts, many developing countries often fail to benefit from today’s cutting-edge social science research. We seek to fill this gap by producing relevant knowledge that draws on available literature, but still respects local sensitivities.
We believe that education and learning is a lifelong journey that doesn’t stop after graduation. By being active readers and researchers, we can be better educators and more erudite consultants. We practice what we preach.
Research projects led by Mirqah Fellows are supported by a number of internal grant schemes depending on project objectives. Fellows are also allowed to apply for external funding under certain conditions.
Mirqah Fellows are encouraged to engage in fruitful research collaborations with researchers from other institutions. Such collaborations aim to leverage the resources provided by Mirqah to produce high-quality research.
If you are interested in joining one of our current research projects or if you have an idea for a new project that is of mutual interest, please get in touch to discuss the possibilities.
Below are the current research projects being carried out by Mirqah Fellows. This page will be updated with new projects, bookmark for future updates.
