Joint Learning Event “Political Economy for Practitioners (PEP)” 24-26 June 2014, The Hague
The joint learning event seeks to provide development practitioners with an action-oriented introduction to the key elements of PE Analysis and possible actions/responses to enable them to make development cooperation more effective as well as more politically sensitive. It builds on available knowledge, expertise and lessons learned of different development partners, while integrating a PE perspective in all aspects of development processes and cooperation. Case studies from different organizations, sectors and regions will be discussed with participants to illustrate the relevance and added value of PE from a realistic, practitioner’s view.
