Capacity Building

Selected research teams received support through methodology workshops tailored to meet their needs. Workshops addressed both quantitative and qualitative methods. Other capacity building activities, such as summer school, provide additional support.

Capacity building is an empowering process. It provides social scientists the tools and networks they need and an improved opportunity to produce good, even excellent, research results. Consequently, the professional status, legitimacy and visibility of these social scientists also increases in their respective countries.
