North-South dialogue

The North-South Dialogue group currently concentrates on determining how to establish sustainable research and education partnerships with universities and researchers in Africa.

The purpose of this group is to:

  • identify what makes North-South partnerships equal and sustainable;
  • exchange best practices in collaboration at project, programmatic and institutional levels;
  • inform The Guild’s policy positions in this space.

If you have further questions about this group, please contact the group's coordinator Laura Royer at
