insights is a thematic overview of recent policy-relevant research findings on international development.
insights aims to make research accessible to non-academics and non-native English speakers. It is distributed free to policymakers and practitioners worldwide. Each issue goes out to over 20,000 subscribers mostly in sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia.
insights aims to fill an information gap. Our market research shows that many developing countries are starved of reliable information about research. insights offers different perspectives and alternative sources of information. Each issue brings a balanced view on a topic by working closely with a Guest Editor who drafts the issue and an Academic Advisor who acts as an overall referee.
