Question Four

4. Centring African institutions 

  • Q: I think the research institutions in Africa should have a forum on how to work together being guided by the wonderful conversation here. PARC can lead this. Georgina Yeboah  

A: Your comment speaks to a central theme that emerged across many of the panelists’ interventions in the launch – though not articulated in quite the same way – is the critical importance of centring Africa’s institutions and constituencies in the conversation about ‘equitable partnerships’. We reflect on this, and its implications for PARC’s work here.
