A key priority for PLP Phase 3 is to build a body of robust, contestable knowledge on developmental leadership in the Pacific. Our research and knowledge is hard wired into all PLP activities, and encompasses a range of tools and approaches, including action research, political economy analysis, developmental leadership and case studies.

Practice-based research helps inform PLP’s work, as well as providing insights for our partners and other stakeholders, including donors, policy makers and the wider development community. PLP’s strategic partnerships with La Trobe University’s Institute for Human Security and Social Change, the Developmental Leadership Program, and the Australian National University’s State, Society and Governance in Melanesia program also enables the program to contribute to a growing body of international literature on developmental leadership and coalitions for change.
