Don’t build stuff – get people talking: A roundtable discussion of the practical implications of the African Power and Politics research

On the 16th January the Secure Livelihoods Research Consortium (SLRC) brought together academics and practitioners to debate the practical implications of the APPP synthesis report which argues that, ‘governance challenges are not fundamentally about one set of people getting another set of people to behave better. They are about both sets of people finding ways of being able to act collectively in their own best interests. They are about collective problem solving in fragmented societies hampered by low levels of trust’.

The Storify link below is a summary of the discussion that took place between Duncan Green (Senior Strategic Adviser, Oxfam) and David Booth (Director of APPP) looking at the implications of the APPP synthesis report, and a breakdown of the key themes that came out from the discussion that followed.
