To ensure that our research and expertise reach as wide an audience as possible, IPIS often complements research with capacity building. Increasingly, IPIS offers stand-alone capacity building, designed to meet the needs and knowledge gaps identified by partners and clients.
IPIS offers trainings on Business and Human Rights, Management of the natural resources sector, field research methodology and mobile data collection tools. To assist partners in bringing their findings and expertise to the right audience, IPIS offers methodological and editorial support on research and communication.
Voices from the south
In line with its strategy and vision on development cooperation, IPIS closely collaborates with partners in the South. As their research and activities provide a particular perspective on subjects related to IPIS’ work, including their views is of utmost importance. Often, IPIS finds itself in a unique position to deploy its resources and expertise to the advantage of local partners through capacity enhancement and support in raising their ‘voice’. With the «Voices from the South» project, IPIS facilitates a series of publications from local partners in order to bring their work to a larger audience.
The «Voices from the South» publications in no way represent IPIS’ research or views. The publications, including the analyses and recommendations presented, are based on the research conducted by our local partners and solely belong to them. IPIS’ input remains limited to providing the necessary editorial support, and to supporting the dissemination of these publications to a wide, international audience.
