In November 2016, INTRAC, the University of Reading and the University of Portsmouth hosted a workshop on the theme of languages and cultural knowledge in development NGOs.
The workshop provided an opportunity for representatives from a range of UK-based NGOs and agencies to hear examples of issues organisations have faced around languages and power relations; reflect on their own experiences; and consider what the development sector can learn from the examples for current practice and to influence policy.
This brief report summarises key discussions and outlines next steps in the research project The Listening Zones of NGOs: languages and cultural knowledge in development programmes.
