Event description

Description

Please join us for the launch of The Barakah Circle, a new research organization established with the goal of promoting evidence-based policy-making in the pursuit of a socially progressive and equal society. Our aim is to make focused and targeted interventions on public policy debates that directly affect marginalized and vulnerable communities through research, training, public engagement, and knowledge exchange. Conceived as an innovative and dynamic part of Ethiopia's nascent research eco-system, the Barakah Circle will have the primary objective of conducting state of the art research in terms of its originality, significance, and rigor.

While we are an independent organization, we are keen to develop mutually beneficial partnerships and collaborations with similar organizations based in Ethiopia and abroad to harness intellectual collaboration across Ethiopia and beyond.

At the launching event, there will be presentations and panel discussions where we will explore a range of issues at the intersection of justice and policy-making on the many and varied dimensions of the experiences of the most marginalized and vulnerable in society.

We will focus on the role of think tanks as knowledge industries and their influence on evidence-based policy-making. We will consider and discuss the vital role of organizations like The Barakah Circle in informing, shaping and transforming politically consequential narratives and policies.

Our speakers include Dr. Teferi Abate Adem, Research Anthropologist of Yale University HRAF and Visiting Research Scholar at Wollo University; Yekatit Getachew Tsehayu, a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Florida; and Dr. Awol Allo, Associate Professor of Law at Keele University and Horn of Africa analyst.
