Module: 4. Project Course
Instructors: Monika Weber-Fahr
The course explores the role of global multi-stakeholder partnerships in international development and offers insights into the rationale for their emergence, their potential and actual power and impact, and in the determinants of their evolution, both individually and as a portfolio. Building on a discussion of historical and theoretical contexts and frameworks, the course then invites students to choose and work on a particular Multi-Stakeholder Partnership (MSP) and to understand the rationale for its emergence, its governance, its performance and future. Students will meet leaders in MSPs and discuss with them how how multi-stakeholder partnerships can be set up for success by working on three core questions: Who are the multi-stakeholder groups involved in a partnership and what are their interests and their influence? What methods create space for interaction and learning? And how can one structure a multi-stakeholder partnership for inclusiveness, accountability and transparency, as well as for effectiveness and impact?
