Getting chronic poverty onto policy agendas: Case studies in policy engagement from Bangladesh, India, South Africa and Uganda.

The aim of this project is to develop a set of contrasting case studies of how teams of Chronic Poverty Research Centre (CPRC) researchers in India, Bangladesh, Uganda and South Africa have been able to raise the issues surrounding chronic poverty in domestic policy debates. These teams differ in composition from country to country, and are led by very different types of institution - in one country by a local NGO, in another by a policy think tank, and in another by a university department. The completed case studies will illustrate how strongly contrasting domestic policy environments combine with the composition of research teams in determining dissemination and policy influencing strategies and activities.
