Sustainability and Participation

Dialogue on Participation
Dialogue on Participation is a thematic quarterly e-newsletter. Each issue will be based on a theme which will be reflective of the discussion and debate on participation. We hope that this sharing will further deepen our understanding on participation, strengthen north-south and south-south dialogue, and provoke us to work in earnest to make participation more meaningful and more effective in promoting social justice.

Please send articles, opinion piece, book reviews, comments, suggestions,
