Equitable Research Partnerships Between Global North and Global South Research Collaborators: Making it Happen

The localisation agenda, and growing recognition that some traditional research practices undermine local knowledge holders and producers, are driving changes in the way research is developed, produced and shared. Power inequalities in the humanitarian sector influence the way Global North and Global South actors build and engage in research partnerships. This guidance offers some practical steps to develop equitable research partnerships and knowledge production processes and systems. It focuses on partnerships between Global North and South research actors and is informed by our collective experience and aspirations as partners. We worked in collaboration with our five partners ( CoLAB – Fiji, GLOW Consultants – Pakistan, inSights – Bangladesh, PIANGO –  Fiji, and The Pujiono Centre – Indonesia) across Asia Pacific  to develop this guidance note.
