Democratizing South-North Relations
By Hakkarainen Outi, Ådahl Susanne
Comprehensive democratisation of South-North relations is crucial to
long-term success in the struggle for a more just and livable world.
The overriding ambition of the enduring association between the Indian
network organisation Lokayan, the Indian research institution CSDS, and
KEPA (Service Centre for Development Cooperation) has been to contribute
to the democratisation of South-North relations on all levels of
society and to develop new methodologies for more democratic interaction
between the South and the North. A significant component of this
process is the dialogic method used between the partners.
The report provides insight into experiences gathered among both the
institutions and individuals involved in this partnership and the
activities carried out since 1989. It also includes an analysis of how
these new methodologies can be applied to the work of other CSO’s.
