Workshop Research Based Policy Influencing | 28-30 August 2012
From 28-30 August 2012 the Project Office IRP organized, in collaboration with the Overseas development Institute (ODI), a 3 day workshop ‘Research Based Policy Influencing’. The objective of the workshop was to introduce participants to different means of policy influencing and research communication strategies. During the workshop, theory on research based policy influencing was combined with training on how to employ practical tools.
An international group of 15 researchers with different academic backgrounds participated in the workshop. All participants were involved in one of the IRP research projects. The training should enable researchers to better understand the policy cycle and to package and deliver their findings to policy-makers (particularly Dutch Embassy staff) and other relevant stakeholders both for the duration of the IRP project and in the long term.
