Together with our partners, we work to influence  debates and to offer new thinking on a range of issues, ranging from the role of women in the research and knowledge system to concerns about the social and political implications of under- investment in Southern research.

  • We help policymakers and practitioners to see the value that research and knowledge can bring to their work – as well as offering practical ways of making better use of it. 
  • We advocate for more equitable research partnerships and Southern-led research agendas, to ensure that  research is relevant to and grounded in understanding of local needs and contexts.
