We work thematically - ensuring coordination between our research, training, consultancy and programmes.
Themes of work
INTRAC links development practice with analysis. We aim to work thematically – ensuring coordination between our research, training, consultancies and programmes. Our multi-disciplinary approach affords us unique insight into all aspects of capacity building work.
Currently we focus on:
- The architecture of aid, which encompasses changing aid policies, the relationships between key stakeholders, funding and other patterns as they relate to civil society.
- The 'Civil Society at a Crossroads?' joint initiative, and involvement in the Civil Society Support Programme Ethiopia - reflecting our ongoing interest in the functions of civil society and how to best support the strengthening of civil society.
- Monitoring and evaluation. INTRAC has around 12 staff and associates working on the design of M&E systems, reviews of M&E policies of major donors and NGOs, and carrying out evaluations as well as training in M&E. We have organised seven international conferences and numerous regional workshops on M&E.
- Faith-based organisations and development. As advisers to a range of FBOs INTRAC is now reviewing the essence of what distinguishes being an FBO in the context of development.
- HIV/AIDS in the workplace. We facilitate a thriving network of researchers and NGO leaders engaged in exploring the challenges of coping with HIV/AIDS in the workplace.
