Strategic Three-Year PlanThree Year Plan: January 2012 to December 2015

We are a multidisciplinary team of academics and practitioners from the North and South, with decades of experience working in some of the world’s most difficult and intractable crises. We are committed to a field-based research approach. Being present in crisis regions is an essential part of how we work. We have direct links with national and local networks and a strong commitment to working closely with local partners through participatory research. Our research is demand-driven. We build partnerships from the concept stage on, taking time to understand the context and dynamics of the communities in which we work, thus ensuring we focus on the priority areas where research, leading to change, is needed. Our findings and outputs are shared with all our stakeholders and are published globally and in the academic press.
