2017/08 – Institute of Development Studies (IDS), Brighton; IDS Bulletin; Author(s): Siri Eriksen et al. - Details

Changes in political and financial frameworks are needed to facilitate longer-term actions where demands move from delivering expert advice and solutions to vulnerable populations to taking up multiple vulnerability knowledges and making space for contestation of current development thinking.

2017/06 – Institute of Development Studies (IDS), Brighton; IDS Working Paper 487; Author(s): Khan Mohmand, S, Justino, P, et al. - Details

Fragile and conflict-affected settings present particular challenges for researchers seeking to study the effect of social and political action (SPA). These challenges are not simply due to prevalent violence and conflict, but contexts of insecurity can restrict the flow of information, key actors can be hard to identify, and if information can be found, vital pieces of the picture may be missing. This paper seeks to explore what particular combinations of empirical methods are best suited for research into three distinct aspects of SPA: the context in which it occurs, its type and nature, and the identification of pathways through which SPA can lead to empowerment and accountability.
