IJR has supported the establishment of the SLB from its inception, giving fundamental guidance on the overall concept, methodology and strategic considerations as some leading experts worldwide. IJR also leads on the quantitative research work, playing a crucial role in the design of the survey and the analysis of survey results, and from 2023 will give trainings for journalists, CSOs and other stakeholders on how to make sense of and use quantitative data in their work.
CEPA joined the SLB Consortium in 2021 and supports the development of the SLB Public Perception Surveys by contextualising IJR’s methodological input, bringing in its experience working with grassroot communities to ensure that lived realities are captured in the survey. In 2023, CEPA will launch the SLB Young Researchers Program, guiding university students in complementing the SLB survey findings with qualitative research.
While SCOPE contributes to the quantitative and qualitative work of the SLB, its main role lies in overseeing overall implementation and coordinating the SLB Consortium. SCOPE further runs the SLB's website and social media channels and organises events to strengthen public discourse based on the SLB's findings. SCOPE is co-financed by the EU and the German Federal Foreign Office and implemented by GIZ in partnership with the Government of Sri Lanka.
