Description: How stakeholder engagement is assessed depends on the purposes of the evaluation. Discussed here are major types of evaluation, benefits of evaluation, common questions for different aspects of monitoring and evaluation and considering evaluation during three […]
Purpose: To review how equitably risks and benefits are distributed amongst stakeholders, researchers and others involved in any research project. Description: The aim of the matrix is to stimulate systematic consideration of potential impacts for stakeholders, researchers and others involved in a research process, so that risks and benefits can be equitably distributed. For each […]
Purpose: To provide insights into the kinds of conflicts that can occur in stakeholder engagement and their causes, as well as how to analyse and manage conflicts. Description: Conflict is common in stakeholder engagement and can occur among individuals, groups or organisations. Managing conflict requires particular skills. A well-managed conflict can be functional, leading to […]

Description: Stakeholders have different contributions to make before, during and after the research. Most stakeholders will be involved at particular times for particular tasks, rather than throughout the whole research process. It can be helpful to specifically consider […]
Purpose: Describes different levels of public participation and can be easily adapted to describe how researchers engage with stakeholders  Arnstein’s purpose in developing the ladder was to describe how ‘have-not’ citizen groups were exploited in government decision-making processes, as well as how much power stakeholders had in determining the final product Description: Arnstein’s ladder has […]
Purpose: (a) To describe different ways stakeholder engagement can occur; (b) To assist in the selection of the appropriate level of stakeholder participation depending on the particular circumstances; and, (c) To specifically examine stakeholder engagement in a research context. Description: The International Association for Public Participation (IAP2) has developed a spectrum for public participation, specifically for government decision making. The spectrum can be easily adapted for other contexts and a modified version has been produced for a research context...
Overview of several high profile system dynamics model-based applications, selected to show what such models look like, how they emerged (often in multidisciplinary interventions), and how they were used successfully to influence strategy, policy, and decision making. Examples include project management, commodity cycles, urban dynamics, and infectious disease policy. Video (30 minutes): Models that Matter: […]
