Community Lead Research and Monitoring and Evaluation Framework for Programme to address Polarisation, Radicalisation and Extremism in Kenya

ISD is seeking to effectively and sustainably address the issues of polarisation, radicalisation, and extremism amongst highly vulnerable populations in Kenya and improve the capabilities of existing local P/CVE structures and actors in three target counties across Kenya. Central to this is building the knowledge and capacity of local stakeholders to carry out impactful community-based interventions while enhancing local communities’ awareness, trust and engagement of these structures.

The successful bidder will support ISD with large scale community driven field research to understand different stakeholder’s perceptions of extremism in Kwale, Nakuru and Isiolo counties. The programme will upskill, empower and coordinate with municipal stakeholders and grassroots organisations to conduct the majority of the research. The programme will also ensure that research outcomes are shared with key stakeholders including the local researchers and the community at large.

This programme will require a strong, mixed-methods approach to research, designed to provide statistically reliable data, representative of the beneficiaries at the practitioner, local community and vulnerable individual levels – including government and security stakeholders. This approach will require a large quantitative study among local communities in target counties with qualitative research methods including surveys, focus group discussions (FGDs) and in-depth interviews (IDIs) with key experts and community stakeholders.
