Community–university research partnerships in global perspectives

This book is based on a three-year international comparative study on poverty reduction and sustainability strategies . It provides evidence from twenty case studies around the world on the power and potential of community and higher education based scholars and activists working together in the co-creation of transformative knowledge. Opening with a theoretical overview of knowledge, democracy and action, the book is followed by analytical chapters providing lessons learned and capacity building, and on the theory and practice of community university research partnerships. It also includes lessons on models of evaluation, approaches to measuring the impact and an agenda for future research and policy recommendations. The book overviews the concept of engaged scholarship and then moves to focus on community-university research partnerships. It is based on a global empirical study of the role of community-university research partnerships within the context of poverty alleviation, the creation of sustainable societies and, broadly speaking, the Millennium Development Goals. The book frames the contribution of community-university research partnerships within a larger knowledge democracy framework, linking this practice to other spaces of knowledge democracy. These include the open access movement, new acceptance of the methods of community-based and participatory research and the call for cognitive justice or the need for epistemologies of the Global South. It takes a particular look at the variety of structures that have been created in the various universities and civil society research organizations to facilitate and enhance research partnerships.

. Put baldly, not only are we not machines that replicate perfectly until a fault or new program is introduced, knowledge transfer itself transforms knowledge, birthing invention and making space for creativity (Wilkins 2018 ). Indeed, as discussed in Chapter 3 , every imitation re-invents and re-mixes its prototype; emulation is not mechanical but transmutational. Spreading innovations For much of the later twentieth century, innovation studies and diffusion studies were inextricably bound up with each other (Hall 2006 ). Although, today, we tend to think of

historians, sustained by feelings of national pride and supported by universities, private money and public funds. However, this scholarly galaxy did not chart wholly fresh directions in the understanding of the nature or significance of the crusades, even if they transformed knowledge of the events and historical context. The dominant themes established earlier in the century persisted: the crusades as colonialism, commercial expansion, cultural exchange, enterprises of national endeavour or triumphs of the human (specifically white, Christian and European) spirit

Benjamin Franklin, Alexander von Humboldt, and Charles-Marie de La Condamine’. 47 Blacks and Amerindians had privileged knowledge; Euro-Americans sometimes valued – and at other times denigrated – that information. Euro-Americans conducted medical experiments on enslaved individuals and feared so-called African diseases. 48 Another theme has been the role of military and naval personnel in transforming knowledge about tropical medicine. 49 Yet another is the emergence of a contentious, far-flung, loosely knit, transnational intellectual or epistemic community, one
