Workshop Series: 2022 Annual Conference
By Rahul Mehrotra, Graduate Institute Geneva
The goal of this workshop is to identify regional challenges in North-South partnerships and, on that basis, have an informed debate about evaluating the quality and impact of such collaborations. r4d.ch research projects conduct cutting-edge research by research consortiums from multiple disciplines in a North-South partnership. Local academic, civil society and policy environments influence the direction, implementation and impacts of this research. This workshop will present results from an internal survey to identify such regional challenges, focusing on Ghana, Laos and Switzerland. The findings will be discussed by an expert panel in a public event hosted at the Graduate Institute, Geneva. Participation at the event is possible in person at Auditorium A2, Maison de la Paix in Geneva or online.
Online Survey: The hosts of the workshop are conducting a short (5-10 minutes) to collect invaluable insights from current or former participants in Swiss-funded international research partnerships (for example: r4d.ch programme) on Regional Challenges in North-South Research Partnerships. Please take some minutes to participate in the survey.
