Understanding APRM Research: Planning, Process and Politics. A Practical Handbook for Peer Review Research

Based on experiences of researchers working on early APRM reports, this handbook offers practical advice on tackling all aspects of this complex research process. This edition of the SAIIA Occasional Papers Series presents two papers by SAIIA researchers that reflect on critical aspects of the African Peer Review (APR) process - conducting research and developing Programmes of Action (PoAs) - that have both technical and political dimensions. The issues they raise in the interest of strengthening the African Peer Review Mechanism (APRM) are pertinent and timely.
