Canadian civil society organizations influencing policy and practice : The role of research

30 novembre 2011

You are invited to a Brown Bag seminar, presented by Stacie Travers, Research Award Recipient with the Canadian Partnerships program of IDRC’s Special Initiatives Division.

Civil society organizations (CSOs) are credited with having a role to play with regards to making research relevant, and with using it to contribute to changes in policy and practice in the developing world. For all actors in the field of international development there is a need to understand the strategies and the contributions of these institutions in order to strengthen, expand, and facilitate this type of work.

Based on a general survey and fieldwork in South America, this talk presents key findings related to how CCSOs view, produce and use research in their work to influence policy and practice in the global South, and does so through introducing the work of 4 Canadian CSOs : Women in Cities International, Rights & Democracy, Socodevi and Save the Children Canada.
