We are proud to work with partners worldwide who share our vision in responding to complex challenges facing contemporary societies, and with whom we collaborate in the course of our research. We believe we are more effective when we work with others to collectively generate knowledge, informed by local context and understandings.

Our partners are academic institutions, national and local governments, NGOs, charities and community groups. We work with partners at all levels, from undertaking fieldwork with grassroots community organisations to supporting national and international policy-makers with evidence-based knowledge to inform their approaches.

Our network of partners is growing all the time, as new projects generate new contacts and connections. We welcome conversations with individuals and organisations who have the potential to join and contribute to our global community.
