Knowledge Development and Exchange


JGG is a learning network. It seeks to promote knowledge development and exchange on thematic and development practice topics with the network's broader community of practice. 

Following each consulting project, JGG records consultants’ observations on thematic issues and professional practice. The cumulative analysis of these provides the network with data for selecting topics for its learning activities and publications. JGG’s publications include:  
Múltiples - an informative bulletin produced twice each year. The JGG network shares updates on the governance situation in its countries of focus, interviews with or opinions from governance experts, and links to resource materials on human rights, justice, democratic institutions, conflict and peace. 
Co-Praxis - a brief bulletin prepared by JGG core consultants once each year with research assistance by university interns. Research and reflections on good practices in development are shared with JGG’s broader learning community. 
JGG also
 organizes learning events and co-implements knowledge-building activities with learning partners.
