The Knowledge Platform Security & Rule of Law seeks to improve understanding and approaches towards security and rule of law; influence and innovate policy and implementation both in The Netherlands and internationally; and facilitate mutual learning and uptake of new knowledge amongst experts, policy makers, practitioners, researchers and relevant other sectors.
In the next phase of our development, the Platform will be working to bring about a shift from knowledge exchange between individuals toward a culture of learning and knowledge uptake within and between organizations.
As an important first step, we are recruiting a consultant to conduct a scoping study on the state of learning within the Knowledge Platform’s members. In pursuit of that, we make a clear distinction between the processes of generating knowledge, of learning from it, and of subsequently applying that knowledge in practice (uptake).
Findings from the scoping study will duly inform the Knowledge Platform’s development of their theory of change and research uptake strategy. Finally, the data set produced by the study will provide the basis for future evaluations of the Platform’s work on learning and uptake.
