Researcher for Case Studies


The British Council is looking for expert researcher to conduct several case studies that form a part of our evaluation of Heritage of Future Past – a Cultural Heritage for Inclusive Growth project in Vietnam.

Deadline for expression of interest is 31 December 2019. Assignment period from 1 February 2020 to 15 March 2020.


Cultural Heritage for Inclusive Growth is a two-year pilot programme undertaken by the British Council exploring ways in which local culture can improve the lives of individuals around the world. In a 2018 British Council report, we explored the notion that cultural heritage could contribute to inclusive growth. In the report, we share findings from a sector consultation and international research suggesting that when people or communities are given the opportunity to engage with, learn from and promote their own cultural heritage, it can contribute to social and economic development.

Heritage of Future Past – A Cultural Heritage for Inclusive Growth project in Vietnam

Heritage of Future Past works with works with music and film heritage, in particular valuable aspects that are under-represented or at high risk of disappearing. Music and film heritage – especially that of or representing marginalised groups, including ethnic minority groups located in remote, rural areas – are becoming increasingly less visible in Vietnam’s contemporary culture and society, against the backdrop of overwhelming economic growth. Within this context, efforts in safeguarding valuable and at-risk intangible cultural components have received very little attention and support. The situation affects the capacity of communities surrounding said components to develop their human capital and contribute to the development of the country.The project works across two main strands:Community Cultural Heritage and FAMLAB (Film, Archive and Music Lab). For more information about the project in Vietnam, please visit

From the two years of the project pilot 2018 - 2020, we are interested to see evidence emerging from activities and by the people in the places that we have worked in that can help us understand:

  1. To what extent and in what ways is investing into cultural heritage contributing towards different forms of inclusive growth to benefit the target audiences of the project?
  2. What opportunities and challenges have been encountered during project implementation, how have they been addressed and what has been learned?
  3. From the experience of the project implementation, what is the potential for longer term growth beyond the end of the programme. What are the conditions needed to support this?

We are looking to conduct several case studies focusing on the people, places and activities that have been part of the Heritage of Future Past project over two years from the start of the project in April 2018.

The case studies should gather and present any valid and reliable quantitative and qualitative data, as applicable, to evidence whether, or to what extent, the following outcomes have been achieved as a result of the project:

Outcome 1: Community members, including children and young people, women and girls, and indigenous groups, have a deeper understanding of the value and opportunities that their cultural heritage can bring, and greater capacity to act on these opportunities.

Outcome 2: Individual professionals, including artisans, crafts people, masters, artists, arts managers, heritage practitioners, have greater capacity to play an active role in safeguarding and transmitting valuable and at-risk cultural heritage components so that they contribute to inclusive growth.

Outcome 3: Institutions and organisations, including grassroot and community-based organisations, have greater capacity to realise the benefits of cultural heritage so that they contribute to inclusive growth.

Outcome 4: Influencers, such as community leaders, and policy and decision makers at national, regional and local level, have a deeper understanding of the value and opportunities that cultural heritage can bring for inclusive growth.

We are therefore looking to have 5 case studies exploring the following:

Case Study 1 – Community members valuing and acting on the valuing and acting on opportunities their cultural heritage can bring.

The communities in focus are in:Gia Lai, Ninh Thuan, Kon Tum, Ho Chi Minh City

Case Study 2 – Individual artists, cultural heritage practitioners and professionals feeling more confident in playing an active role in cultural heritage.

Case Study 3 – Institutions/organisations playing a new or greater role in supporting cultural heritage in a way that contributes towards inclusive growth.

Case Study 4 – Partnership and collaboration between institutions or organisations based in the UK and Vietnam around the use of cultural heritage yielding positive outcomes.

Case Study 5 – Changes in the environment or practice or attitudes of policy/decision makers towards the potential of cultural heritage.

The final output of this assignment would be a collection of between 3 and 5 case studies presented in form of a written report, of between 1,000 and 1,500 words per each case study, and between 6,000 and 1,000 words for the entire report. We welcome visual and audio elements incorporated into the report format.

To support the development and execution of these case studies, as well as the final report writing the project team will be able to provide:

  • Project design documents and reports
  • Project monitoring data, as well as contact information of project partners and beneficiaries as required
  • Results of project participant survey across all target groups
  • A collection of Whispers of Change, which captures information about possible positive changes from the project partners and participants.


  • Professional fee for 22 working days, with the daily rate depending on experience and qualifications, inclusive of all applicable taxes
  • All domestic travel expenses as required by the assignment as agreed with the project team, to be arranged and paid for by the British Council, or reimbursable based on actual receipts.

We follow the EU–UN cost norms for professional fees and other expenses in Vietnam.
