Irish-African Partnership and Research Capacity Building for Development: Potential to Learn from Research for the Education and Lifelong Learning Sector
Mark, Rob; Nakabugo, Mary Goretti
Adult Learner: The Irish Journal of Adult and Community Education, p56-74 2011
The Irish-African Partnership for Research Capacity Building (IAP) is a research consortium involving all of the nine universities on the island of Ireland together with four African universities, with the overall aim of building research capacity for poverty reduction. The project was supported by a three-year grant from Irish Aid. This article examines the achievements of IAP and argues that the "foresight" approach and methodology used to generate the health and education research priorities can make a useful contribution not only to development research, but also to adult education. (Contains 4 tables and 1 footnote.)
