As in other areas of International Relations, the study of interactions between academia and the practitioner world, related to state policymaking, NGOs, IGOs, civil society activism, the private sector, or the media, is based on experiences located primarily in the global North. This conversation between scholars located in and working on distinct sites in the global South seeks to examine the ways in which scholar-practitioner relations unfold in settings outside the North, the potential drivers and obstacles to meaningful exchange, and the existing standards of scholarly “relevance” or “impact” that exist in diverse parts of the world.
This conversation is co-sponsored by New America’s Planetary Politics Initiative.
