Partnerships: strong evidence for practice - Institute for Global Health & Development, Queen Margaret University

29th May 2018, 13:00 to 17:00

How can practitioners and academics work in partnerships to build strong evidence for practice?

29th May 2018 (Queen Margaret University – How to get here) 1.45pm – 5.30pm

Helping children, families and communities to cope with the impacts of conflict, disaster or ongoing adversity is highly complex. How do practitioners and academics really get to grips with people’s needs? How do we support local communities to harness their own resources as well as contributing where there are gaps? What kinds of interventions are the most useful? How do we measure impact on the things that really matter?

 

The Institute for Global Health and Development (IGHD) works in partnership with NGOs, Governmental organisations, UN agencies and local communities to build understanding through research. Using a wide range of research methods we seek to improve child protection in humanitarian settings, the mental health and wellbeing of communities affected by conflict, and integration where refugees are resettling.

 

This half-day conference will bring together Scottish practitioners, policy makers and academics to learn from new research emerging from IGHD.
