Projects, alliances and interinstitutional networks

GRADE researchers actively collaborate with other institutions-people and projects, networks and alliances to undertake studies that promote development.

  • Group Sofía

    Group Sofía, Women Researchers in Social Sciences in Peru, aims to promote equal opportunities for researchers in social sciences in Peru, in areas such as academic training, progression in the professional career and the production of knowledge, as well as for their participation in debate and policy spaces. It is an initiative of researchers from the Research Center of the Universidad del Pacífico (CIUP), GRADE, the Institute for Peruvian Studies (IEP) and the Center for Sociological, Economic, Political and Anthropological Research of the Pontifical Catholic University of Peru (CISEPA- PUCP).

  • Young Lives Peru

    The Young Lives study follows the lives of around 12,000 children in Peru, Ethiopia, India and Vietnam (approximately 3,000 children in each country) with the aim of identifying the causes and consequences of child poverty and making public policy recommendations. The organizations in charge of the project in Peru are GRADE and the Nutrition Research Institute (IIN).

  • FORGE

    The Strenghtening Management of the Education Sector in Peru (FORGE in Spanish) project —implemented by GRADE with the support of the Government of Canada (Contribution Agreement No. A-034597, signed on March 29, 2013)— offers technical assistance at the request of national and regional, public and private, involved in educational management and dialogue, through the promotion of equity, the promotion of innovation, and the strengthening of capacities.

  • ILAIPP

    The Latin American Research Initiative for Public Policies (ILAIPP) has as main objectives to generate knowledge to enrich and propose the debate on public policies and development in Latin America; build a space for exchange, discussion and learning among its members about proposals and experiences of advocacy in public policies; and promote actions to strengthen the institutional capacities of the centers that make up the initiative. GRADE is a member of ILAIPP together with 11 other think tanks in the region.

  • ELLA Network

    Evidence and Lessons from Latin America (ELLA) is a network of fifteen partners, including GRADE, spanning Latin America, Africa and South Asia. ELLA conducts inter-regional comparative research, and runs exchange and learning programmes based on that research, with organisations and individuals from across the global south. The goal of the Network is to foster south-south learning that is sensitive to context, so that policymakers and practitioners can adapt knowledge from elsewhere to their own realities.

  • Nopoor

    The Nopoor project adopts a comprehensive approach to poverty, covering all its facets, processes and dynamics. It seeks to provide politicians with new analyzes and a better understanding of the areas in which they can make a difference. It aims to develop comparative studies focusing on the conditions for successful poverty reduction policies in selected countries and how to relate them to other countries by actively disseminating research results at national and international level. GRADE is one of the 19 project partners from 17 countries around the world.
