Lucy Hovil
Was Senior Researcher - Dr. Lucy Hovil founded the RLP's Research and Advocacy department in October 2000, was head of the department until the end of 2006, and then Senior Research Fellow until Dec 2007. During her time at the RLP she pioneered the RLPs Working Paper series, and contributed through writing and/or editing 20 Working Papers. She developed a department that promotes innovative approaches to action-oriented research that are rooted in social-science methodologies, with a view to creating space for marginalised voices and advocating on their behalf for policy change. She developed a research agenda focusing on issues of displacement, conflict, and justice. She is now working for the International Refugee Rights Initiative as their Senior Researcher on a new research and advocacy project, carried out in conjunction with the Social Science Research Council focusing on issues of citizenship and displacement in the Great Lakes Region. She continues to be in regular contact with the RLP, and hopes to continue working with them long into the future.
