Op de website wordt het onderwerp als volgt omschreven:
'Multi-stakeholder cooperation' has become a buzzword in international development. In order to solve complex global challenges, collaboration between a range of stakeholders from different sectors is a must, so it is said. Only by breaking up disciplinary boundaries and searching for transdisciplinary knowledge creation can we evolve towards the 'systems thinking' and 'systemic change' that is required to solve these challenges.
But how do such partnerships really work? Is a genuine participatory process in which solutions for development are co-created even possible? Or do power imbalances between, for example, partners from developing countries and those based in the North, persist? Do contexts for multistakeholder cooperation really offer an enabling environment for transdisciplinary research? How precisely are partners who look very differently at knowledge production able to find synergy and complementarity in a multi-stakeholder partnership?Marc Craps van Cycloop geeft op dit symposium een keynote over "On Co-creation and Trandisciplinarity in Multi-stakeholder Research Processes".
