We partner with institutions and academics to help increase the impact and reach of their research. Through our well-established public and political engagement programmes, we reach a wide and interested audience, including policy-makers, civil society, students and diaspora groups. We deliver innovative and accessible ways of disseminating research findings and building engagement throughout a project’s duration. Through our links to UK parliament, we aim to encourage evidence-based policy-making and better-informed parliamentary debate.
“We deeply appreciated the Royal African Society’s partnership on our recent high-level parliamentary roundtable. [The team] provided high-quality counsel and support at every stage of the event, and assisted us in engaging further with parliamentarians in attendance. Their support was critical to creating a stimulating event, which helped us raise awareness around the UKRI GCRF Action against Stunting Hub, a £19.76 million investment by the UK government to alleviate child stunting, globally.”
