About The Talk: "Networks and north–south partnerships have become prerequisites for much research funding in policy-relevant fields. The objectives vary but usually include levelling the scholarly playing field, improving research quality, building southern capacity and relaying southern perspectives to northern policymakers. Reflecting on a decade’s work in Southern Africa, this paper suggests such initiatives often fall short of their objectives."
