The Thinking and Working Politically (TWP) Community of Practice (CoP) first came together at a small gathering that was convened at the end of a regional professional development conference of Governance Advisers working for the United Kingdom’s Department of International Development (DFID) held in Delhi in November 2013. That meeting was attended by a group of approximately 40–50 people, mainly practitioners, with the objective to ‘inform and influence the international development and donor community regarding how effectively to follow-through on the rhetorical and strategic assertion that ‘politics matters’. Since then, the CoP has held a number of meetings, or safe spaces, and events around the world, each addressing different issues and challenges in the TWP realm. Click here to find out more.
