Workshop for Multi-Stakeholder Networks

Posted by Steve Waddell in Blog on April 17, 2012

People working in multi-stakeholder networks and academics analyzing them will gather for three days to deepen their ability to contribute to networks’ effectiveness.  These networks, particularly in their global form of Global Action Networks (GANs) are at the leading edge of our current knowledge and skills for organizing effective action.  All those who are interested in advancing both their personal capacity for this, and that of the broader community, are encouraged to attend.  Special early-bird rate registration deadline:  April 30.

The workshop is being organized as a track of the 19th Annual Conference on Multi-Organisational Partnerships, Alliances and Networks (MOPAN).  This means participants can also participate in other of the 12 tracks.  The workshop is co-developed by eight people working in networks and four academics;  it will be a relatively small-group affair.   Topics include:  strategies for creating “robust” networks, measurement and evaluation, legitimacy and diversity, network development processes, and network learning strategies.

Lead organizers are myself and:

Peter GlasbergenHonorary Professor, Maastricht University (International Centre for Integrated assessment and Sustainable development ICIS);  and Emeritus Professor of Environmental Studies, Policy and Management, Utrecht University and the Dutch Open Universiteit;  Chair, the Utrecht-Nijmegen Programme on Partnerships.

Elad LevinsonVice President, Organizational Effectiveness, ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers).
