UNRISD convened a methodology workshop for its project, Politics of Domestic Resource Mobilization for Social Development, on 2 and 3 May in Geneva. Following a Call for Expressions of Interest, four countries were selected for in-depth multidisciplinary research, two in Latin America—Bolivia and Guatemala—and two in sub-Saharan Africa—Uganda and Zimbabwe.
At the workshop team leaders from the four countries presented their research proposals and discussed issues related to research design and methodology, as well as communication and outreach activities, with external experts and UNRISD staff.
The following researchers from the country teams participated in the workshop.
Anne Mette Kjaer and Mesharch W. Katusiimeh
