RFI mentioned in Michigan School of Public Health blog

The RFI was mentioned in a post on the Michigan School of Public Healths blog, titled:

Research Abroad: Understanding Local Contexts and Advocating for Change

The post discusses “research abroad”  and understanding how power imbalances and cultural histories with regard to research can affect partnerships and relations between researchers.

The post discusses issues such as ownership of research, approaches to improving international research, understanding the local culture and context, building capacity and ensuring that research is for the greater good.

The RFI is mentioned as a solution that is influential in ensuring that partnerships are fair and equitable, with similar efforts to address equity in research such as the Swiss Commission for Research Partnerships with Developing Countries and the TRUST project also noted.
