Funding for research in international development often includes a focus on fair and equitable partnerships. Academics based in the global North are increasingly encouraged by funders to include academic partners based in the global South and civil society practitioners in their research projects. But achieving this is complicated: partnership and research are both political.

This set of resources – an introduction, six modules and nine written and audio case studies – has been designed to help academics, NGOs, CSOs and research brokers involved in collaborative international development research put principles for fair and equitable research partnerships into practice.
