This research visit at the International Food Policy Research (IFPRI) is an integral and the final part of my phd. project. Prior to the visit I will have conducted and finished fieldworks and data collecting activities related to other organizations with in the international agricultural development policy sector. (For more details, see the attached project description). I will thus enter IFPRI with a comprehensive data set. The planned stay at IFPRI will be utilized to collect and process the data sets , and to turn them into articles. The goal is to publish them in renowned journals within the research field. In this regard the stay at IFPRI will be highly instrumental, as the organization represents a research institute at the research front. The scie ntific knowledge environment at IFPRI creates the best conditions for producing high quality research within my topic. For IFPRI the benefit of my visit will be added knowledge about the changing roles of the international organizations within the policy sector, including the role of the IFPRI/CGIAR itself, as well as about the changing role of knowledge related to governance in the process of contemporary globalization. Also, the IFPRI is part of a worldwide network of research institutions within agric ulture. Situated at IFPRI, this give me the access to this extensive network of different actors in the sector, and the opportunity to disseminate my research results to a variety of target groups within and/or relevant to agriculture. The stay will creat e new links between this global research institution and research organizations in Norway, in particular the University of Bergen and the Christian Michelsen Institute (CMI). This makes further collaborations a likely outcome. As such, the project will co ntinue to add value after the visit.
