Research into policy processes: Bringing global evidence on social protection into local policy contexts

Briefing/policy paper

Briefing/policy paper

This project aimed to explicitly learn about and operationalise links between international discourse and national discourses and policy processes. It has achieved this through a series of varied country-based policy engagement activities in Uganda to debate international research findings that support the potential for social protection approaches to meet the poverty reduction needs of chronically and extremely poor people. The project elicited responses from national policy makers and other stakeholders in Uganda, and assessed the contextual political and logistical constraints to policy uptake, with a view to supporting any openings to move the agenda forward nationally.
