Research-Practice Collaborations: Roundtable discussed different perspectives on 10th of november

Thursday 24 November 2022

The cooperation between researchers and practitioners during different stages of the research process has the potential to benefit both society and research supporting processes of ‘transformation’. In her recent commentary in the journal, the European Journal of Development Research (EJDR), Katja Bender from the International Center for Sustainable Development at the Bonn-Rhein-Sieg University of Applied Sciences reflects on Research-Practice Collaborations (RPCs) from a political economy perspective.

RPCs have the potential to foster research quality in many ways, but also can produce unintended adverse effects on knowledge generation which may create distorted and biased knowledge and even help produce or exacerbate existing inequalities. Using Bender's paper as a jumping off point, the EJDR has published a series of commentaries discussing her approach from various perspectives.

On 10th of November 2022 a virtual roundtable about the main findings of these authors took place. The Video shows the whole event:
