INASP partners consider the road ahead

Over the last 25 years, INASP has enjoyed developing partnerships that have been helping us to support both institutions and individuals to produce, share and use research and knowledge which can transform lives. In a recent post, INASP partners reflected on achievements over the past quarter of a century. This blog post looks at some approaches that INASP’s associates and partners believe will continue to be important for INASP going forward.

Supporting parliaments in a post-truth world

Recently, INASP held a webinar to explore how peer learning can support evidence use in parliament. This webinar was hosted in collaboration with African Center for Parliamentary Affairs (ACEPA) and AGORA as part of the extension of our parliamentary peer learning project supported by a SPARKS grant from the Effective Institutions Platform. Our partner parliaments in Kenya, Uganda and Ghana shared their experience of how staff and Members of Parliament (MPs) can work together to drive an evidence-informed approach within parliament. Here, we discuss how peer learning can strengthen evidence use in parliaments, sharing some of the insights gained during the webinar discussions.

So how can researchers effectively contribute to the policy-making process in such a controversial area?
