Guidance for effective approaches to collaborations with Churches in the Pacific for development research
This Guide, ‘How to Collaborate with Pacific Churches for Development Research’, is a practical resource to assist Australian-based researchers and Australian and international development organisations. The Guide is designed to support good practice for research partnerships with Churches in the Pacific, where the aim of the research is to generate evidence that influences policy and practice in the international development sector. The primary focus is how individuals and organisations might partner with Pacific churches for development research. The Guide does not consider in depth whether researchers should work with Churches in the Pacific. Rather, it provides insights into how these research collaborations can be conducted effectively and ethically. The case studies at the end highlight the application of the principles contained in the Guide.
