We welcome proposals from outstanding candidates for empirical research 
projects into the causes and consequences of change in contemporary 
societies, particularly in the areas of inequality, immigration, 
religion, the workplace and civic engagement.

We are particularly keen to fund projects in New Media and Political 
Change - how new forms of digital communication may be changing the 
nature of citizen participation and political organisations' structure
