Glo­bal Part­nership Net­work (GPN)

The Global Partnership Network (GPN) is a collaboration of higher education institutions and civil society groups for research, teaching and workshops around the SDG 17: “Global Partnership for Sustainable Development”.

The GPN calls attention to the shortcomings, limitations, and problematic aspects of international partnerships that have historically been shaped by colonial relations between North and South and sometimes continue to reflect them. Redressing this historical dynamic requires reconstructing the concept towards a partnership based on mutual recognition and solidarity, adequate to the multi-polar and postcolonial 21st century.
