Inviting reality in: external advice on Global South collaborations

  • Wednesday 25 Sept
  • Room 103B, Level 1, Messukeskus Expo and Convention Centre
  • Level: intermediate
  • Related Expert Communities Cooperation for Development

When strategies for collaborating with institutions from the Global South are drafted without their participation, how effective can they be? Empowering partners, creating ownership, building equal relationships sound good in principle, but how do institutions turn them into practice? In this session, participants will learn some concrete ways of involving external partners, and the pros and cons of inviting reality into the mix.
