We believe that learning is crucial to improving activities aimed at tackling poverty, inequality and discrimination, and to ensuring their chances of sustained impact and change. Yet finding appropriate spaces, time and resources for learning and reflection is often a huge challenge.

INTRAC provides a platform for debate and critical thinking among practitioners, policy makers and researchers from around the world through virtual and face-to-face events, and a wealth of accessible publications.

We create safe spaces to share knowledge and ideas, exchange examples of good and bad practice, and foster trust where it is lacking.

We focus on:

  • Convening conferences, workshops and webinars, bringing together different stakeholders to facilitate dialogue on key themes in civil society and development.
  • Running action learning programmes among peer groups within civil society to encourage innovation and fresh thinking through collaboration across actors and organisations.
  • Producing practitioner-oriented, accessible publications including blogs, practice notes, discussion papers and open-access journal articles.
  • Supporting practitioners to write about and publish their learning for the benefit of others.
  • Facilitating exchange of good practice within our network of associates, consultants and friends.
