Common themes emerge for improving research equity in Uganda and Ethiopia

Towards the end of 2018, INASP and local partners held national dialogue events with stakeholders from across the research and knowledge systems to consider issues of equity. Dr Femi Nzegwu, who leads INASP’s Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning work, summarizes some of the key learning from two events in Africa.

History and context can guide gender equity plans

Gender equity was a key topic of discussion during the research equity dialogue events in Uganda and Ethiopia last year. Reflecting on the issues and arguments raised at these events, Dr Femi Nzegwu, Director of the SERKS programme, considers gender inequity in research and higher education from a historical, contemporary and future-focused perspective.

Recognizing inequity in research and knowledge at all levels

Sometimes national-level or local-level inequities in research and knowledge can be missed when they occur in countries that are already disadvantaged by global inequities. Events in four countries will help us understand our partners’ visions for their national research systems and identify where INASP can play the most useful role.
