2 Building blocks of partnerships: lessons from case studies from the South and North Rajesh Tandon and Edward T. Jackson It is said that practice makes perfect. Indeed, we are convinced that it is only by doing community–university partnerships that engaged academics, reflective practitioners, progressive policymakers and innovative funders can both understand and strengthen this approach to mobilizing knowledge for livelihoods, sustainability and democracy. While, as Paolo Freire showed, action and reflection are two mutually reinforcing and dialectical

3 Civil partnership bills On the same day that Zappone and Gilligan lost their High Court case against the Revenue Commissioners, Labour Party spokesperson on the Constitution and law reform, Brendan Howlin TD, tabled a Private Member’s Civil Unions Bill in Dáil Éireann. Howlin, as an opposition TD, tabled a bill which differed from the Domestic Partnership Bill proposed by Norris in 2004. The Labour Party bill proposed to accord same-sex civil partners the same legal rights as married couples in the Irish State and this time the terms of the bill would be

. Why wouldn’t India welcome a greater strategic partnership with the U.S.? Thus, for more than a decade, the U.S. has wooed India with words and deeds as a matter of national security policy. But to what practical effect? The calculus is not nearly so simple, or as obvious, from an Indian perspective. There are many issues and concerns within India weighing against such a strategic partnership, at least as the U.S. generally conceives one, and there are some complex obstacles in the path of greater cooperation. Certainly

6 Embedding community–university partnerships: science shops and policy  development Eileen Martin, Emma McKenna, Henk Mulder and Norbert Steinhaus Science shops originated in the Netherlands in the 1970s as part of the wider democratization-of-science movement. The gap between civil society and traditional knowledge providers was recognized by Dutch students, who established relationships with civil society organizations (CSOs) to bring their research needs into universities where they could be addressed by students as part of their academic course of study.

2 Interpretations of Irish social partnership Introduction The subject of social partnership has been approached in a number of ways. This chapter provides an overview of these approaches in order to set the scene for examining the more specific topic of the CVP. This discussion covers both historical and comparative perspectives and is tailored to the more recent period, i.e. since 1987. In the first part, the variety of sceptical perspectives on the Irish model of social partnership is explored. Much of this material is pitched at a negative and abstract level

9 Economic Partnership Agreements and Africa: losing friends and failing to influence Christopher Stevens Both the Euro-­Africa Summit of December 2007 in Lisbon and its successor in Tripoli of November 2010 illustrate Europe’s difficulty in marrying its rhetorical goal of a strategic partnership with Africa and its trade policy towards the continent. The lofty aims of the Lisbon Summit were lost in a bad tempered row over Economic Partnership Agreements (EPAs), given that it took place one month before what the EU billed as the ‘ultimate deadline’ for interim

The Partnership in Power project aimed to modernise the internal mechanisms of the Labour Party in preparation for government. The changes led to a two-year ‘rolling programme’ for policy formation, new opportunities for membership engagement through policy forums, a restructuring of the NEC, and a downgrading of the policy role of the party conference. The project was designed to avoid confrontations between the party leadership and members during the lifetime of the next Labour government. Partnership in Power aimed to prevent a repeat of the

7 The European Union’s partnership with China: navigating between trouble and promise Gustaaf Geeraerts Introduction Since 2003 the EU and China have acknowledged each other as strategic partners. Slowly but steadily they have built a partnership, which constitutes probably one of the most structured relationships between two global powers in today’s world system. Given the ongoing transformation of the international system in which the re-emergence of China is a major driver of change, the EU–China strategic partnership constitutes an important dimension in

Problems escalated as the council was faced with internal strife that eventually led to the rise of the New Left.This set it on a collision course with the Thatcher government that was itself determined to introduce a series of radical reforms designed not only to cut back on public expenditure but to change the role of local government. Compounding the council’s problems was severe economic decline, the
