INCLUDE Platform

On 20-21 October, the Knowledge Platform on Inclusive Development Policies (INCLUDE) organized a two-day event at the International Institute of Social Studies in The Hague.

The first day was a workshop with Platform members and representatives from the research groups that have been granted funding by NWO/WOTRO. During the workshop the research groups introduced themselves and their research projects and discussed their research uptake activities. An overview of all research groups and their research proposals can be found here.

Also on Monday, INCLUDE Steering Group member Isa Baud officially launched INCLUDE’s website. On this website you can find information about INCLUDE, the Knowledge Platform on Inclusive Development Policies, including our vision, mission, and organization.

On Tuesday 21 October, INCLUDE’s Platform members met for their sixth closed meeting. The main aim of the meeting was to discuss the future knowledge activities that will be carried out by INCLUDE.

A report of the two-day event has been published, as well as the presentations that were given. Please find them here.

Established in June 2012, INCLUDE is one of the five knowledge platforms initiated by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs to generate knowledge to make the policies of the Netherlands and other donors  more effective. The Platform brings together researchers, NGOs, policy-makers and representatives from the private sector from Africa and the Netherlands to exchange ideas on how to achieve better research-policy linkages.

Many African people join many Europeans and Americans in the celebration of the transition from the old year to the new one. Although within a generation we probably will swift to New Year celebrations according to the traditional Chinese calendar, I feel it’s still allowed to wish you and all your friends and relatives: Happy New Year 2015.
