  2. 2. Overview • The problem • Challenges • Addressing challenges in linking research to policy and practice (bridging ‘the gap between researchers and policy makers) • Innovators at the country level in linking research to policy and practice • Participatory Action Research • Thinking about the future 2
  3. 3. • Just too much of it and not always what you need • Multiple parallel demands • Information goes up and never comes down • Key consumers of information not being served: – Policy makers – Public Sector Managers Managers – Service Providers – General public The Changing Global Environment Drowning in data!

  6. 6. Why Research is not used? • The divide between researchers and policy makers • Research results are not presented in a user friendly form (comprehensible and credible) for the potential users. • Results are not available in a timely manner • Failure or inadequate dissemination (to whom and through which channels?) • What criteria are used to adopt new intervention (resulting from research). • How should an intervention be evaluated during implementation
  7. 7. Challenges in Linking Research to Policy 1. Research competes with many other factors in the policymaking process and research isn’t valued as an information input [General climate for research use] 2. Research evidence isn’t relevant [Production] 3. Research evidence isn’t easy to use [Translation] 9
  8. 8. Challenges • Many proven interventions (cheap and cost effective) remain inaccessible. - And do not reach those who need them most. - Are hardly used at all - Widespread implementation may take years or decades
  9. 9. Efforts to Bridge the Know-Do-Gap • Research-policy initiative • Supporting use of research evidence or policy in Jawa Barat governmental systems • Participatory Action Research
  10. 10. The Value of PAR PAR is more of an approach than a method of inquiry. It [PAR] is about jointly producing knowledge with others to produce critical interpretations and readings of the world, which are accessible, understandable to all those involved and actionable. (Paul Chatterton, Duncan Fuller & Paul Routledge, 2007) What this research tradition provides is a shared commitment to fundamentally disrupt conventional hierarchies of knowledge production: who decides on the questions to ask, how to ask them, and how to theorise the world. Liberatory – PAR seeks to ‘liberate’ participants to have a greater awareness of their situation in order to take action, although for some researchers the emphasis on liberation will be tempered; PAR is not just another method – more an orientation to inquiry – this means that many different methods are possible (quantitative and qualitative);
  11. 11. Focus on change a focus on change – commitment to participate with people to improve and understand the world by changing it (McIntyre- Mills 2008) although there are differences between researchers as to the scale of that change and the degree to which it is focused on promoting democracy and reducing inequality;
  12. 12. context-specific • context-specific – it is generally targeted around the needs of a particular group although this can vary in size from small teams to projects encompassing entire communities;
  13. 13. emphasis on collaboration • emphasis on collaboration – researchers and participants working together to examine a problematic situation or action to change it for the better, although there are differences in opinion as to how much collaboration is possible or necessary;
  14. 14. a cyclical process • a cyclical process – an iterative cycle of research, action and reflection (Kindon et al, 2006) underpins the research process although it is not always clear how this happens in practice; participants are competent and reflexive and capable of participating in the entire research process although researchers may adopt different standards as to the level of participation that ‘qualifies’ as PAR; knowledge is generated through participants’ collective efforts and actions;
  15. 15. Liberatory • Liberatory – PAR seeks to ‘liberate’ participants to have a greater awareness of their situation in order to take action, although for some researchers the emphasis on liberation will be tempered;
  16. 16. Evidence briefs Systematic reviews of research Individual studies, articles and reports Basic, theoretical and methodological innovations 18 Addressing the Challenge
  17. 17. PAR Addressing Challenge – Policymakers lack forums where challenges can be discussed with stakeholders and researchers • One option (among many) for addressing challenge – Plan deliberative dialogues at which PAR serve as the starting point for off-the-record deliberations involving policymakers, stakeholders (including citizens), researchers and others 19
