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.
