We are pleased to announce the publication of a special issue of the Canadian Journal of Development Studies, entitled Next Generation of Knowledge Partnerships for Global Development, dedicated to a collaboration between Cooperation Canada and the Canadian Association for the Study of International Development (CASID). The Next-generation models for Canadian collaboration in international development project (2017-2020, henceforth NextGen) was funded through the IDRC Foundations for Innovation program.

This special issue, co-edited by Andréanne Martel, Fraser Reilly-King, and Bipasha Baruah, grew out of the NextGen initiative. It documents NextGen findings and taps into different models and experiences of collaboration between practitioners and scholars in the global development sector in Canada and abroad. An introduction to the issue was also published last year.
