This paper on “Exchanges between the research sector and NGOs” presented the key facets and current trends in relations between these two sectors.

The paper initially looks at the potential of partnerships between NGOs and researchers, before focusing on research platforms and bodies that could be used to establish partnerships of this kind. It then analyses the obstacles and constraints to be taken into account in these relationships.

Numerous examples are given to support the arguments, particularly illustrating the situation in France by comparing it with the Anglo-Saxon world.
