Adrian Leftwich, Chris Wheeler

Findings, insights and guidance from the DLP's first Research and Policy Workshop, Frankfurt 10-11 March 2011, Adrian Leftwich & Chris Wheeler, June 2011.

This paper provides a summary of the key findings, insights and initial guidance arising from recent phases of DLP work and its first Research and Policy Workshop, held in Frankfurt on 10/11 March 2011. It is best read in conjunction with the Workshop document, entitled “Politics, Leadership and Coalitions in Development: Policy Implications of the DLP Research Evidence” (see related documents below), which contains all the Executive Summaries of the fuller research papers.

The workshop brought together the DLP researchers with key individuals drawn from policy-making circles, policy research institutes and NGOs. These included colleagues from DFID, GIZ, AusAID, Transparency International, The Asia Foundation, Oxfam Australia, The Policy Practice, the World Bank, the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace and GRIPS (Japan). A list of the participants is attached as an Appendix.

The views expressed in this document do not necessarily reflect the views of all those present at the Workshop but draw heavily on their many rich contributions
