PRESILIENT is a large network comprising 14 partners (of which 7 are non-academic) and 15 associated partners located in Africa, Asia-Pacific, and Latin America, committed to delivering a world-class cross-regional training on informality in the Global South to: measure it, address it, and find viable and sustainable alternatives. By doing this, the network has committed to four main objectives:
- train the next generation of experts on informality in the Global South
- conduct research in 15 different countries and produce novel data and significant theoretical advancements in the field
- produce strategic intelligence that can be used to provide practical policy recommendations
- enable multi-directional knowledge transfer through network events, pairing of academic and non-academic partners (who will jointly supervise each fellow), secondment, and task-based teamwork.
