Presenter: Fred Cardin of Using Evidence
Summary: To quote a researcher from a recent study of institutions in Africa, "How is African ever going to develop if it doesn't have its own set of very strong institutions?" If we are going to collectively address global challenges, strong national partners are essential. A continuing failure to address this gap in many parts of the world will stymie active engagement in the co-creation, co-design and implementation of solutions to the major challenges of our time. This webinar will explore what strong institutions would mean based on a study of African research institutions. The webinar will explore the decolonisation of research as a proxy for decolonising development more broadly in addressing the challenges we face collectively.
