ECID research aims to understand how inclusive governance happens in fragile countries.

We compare how state and non-state actors respond to the demands of disadvantaged citizens for basic public services. Each of the research projects look at the disadvantaged groups most relevant to the country’s context, as well as a comparative project that is being conducted in the UK.

Research Ethics Panel

To strengthen the ethics and quality of the research projects and eliminate knowledge inequalities, an Ethics Panel was created by the ECID learning and research group.

ECID’s ethics panel is decentralised and formed by members from the different participating countries (Myanmar, Nigeria, UK and Zimbabwe). It includes academics and practitioners so that the two dimensions are assessed.

We believe the ethics panel is an innovative practice in international NGOs. Its decentralised and academic-practice hybridity – rather than just academic – can also be a model to follow by other NGOs and universities in search of “research for impact”.
