Politically informed programming

We want to find out how policymakers and practitioners can better understand and support the political as well as the technical dimensions of developmental change. 

Our research seeks to unpack the political processes behind developmental change, and to support donors and other actors in the development process to improve political analysis by clarifying the roles of power, agency, leadership and conflict.  We are also exploring ways of building practitioners’ skills through research-based learning. For example, we are using action research to help practitioners monitor and evaluate their work as they design and implement innovative politically informed programming approaches. Our aim – to help policymakers and practitioners increase the effectiveness of their analytical, programming and operational work.
