Abstract [en]

This book is about how you can work with development or, more precisely, how you can use partnerships to organise development. The book is based on the experience gained in development partnerships in one of the programmes of the European Social Fund, the Equal Programme, but we believe that this experience is generally applicable to other partnerships as well as to other forms of co-operation on development. We can highlight the possibilities and problems relating to working in partnerships and hope that the book can provide support for others, not by providing ready-made answers but rather by asking questions that will encourage reflection.

One of the reasons for producing this book was that we too wanted to learn more about partnerships – especially development partnerships. We wanted to understand their different phases – before, during and after the development work that a development partnership decides to take on. We wanted to know how partnerships can be organised and led, what impact the composition and selection of members has, how feedback to the organisations of each individual partner works, whether the work leads to any results, and if so whether the results are utilised and disseminated. We also wanted to learn more about transnational work in partnerships.

As our work is based on the experience gained in the Equal Programme, in which partnership is a prerequisite for the allocation of funds, our purpose is not to question partnership as an organisational form. Instead, we wish to describe and analyse the experience gained in a way that will help you as a reader to reflect on and make your own well-considered decisions about your partnership. The examples that are presented here are therefore intended as starting points for reflection and dialogue, not as models or templates. The questions that are asked are concretised in some cases by the examples that are presented, but they are also based on the previous and general experience of the participants and the authors.
