a cycle of meetings between academics and development practitioners
Prospective and Cooperation organizes cycles of meetings between academics and practitioners of development, in the form of workshops-debates.
These aim at initiating a collective reflection in the field of international cooperation and development aid between international, national and local actors (academic researchers, civil society representatives, practitioners of international cooperation and public authorities representatives).
Between 2012 and 2017, two cycles took place:
> 2013-2014 cycle: Mobilization and knowledge transfer in the context of North-South mutations
> 2015-2017 cycle: Professional and scientific practices as a political project
> 2018: Is hell always and still paved with good intentions?
Initial training of future professionals in development and international cooperation
through teaching in professional Masters from the following universities: IEP Grenoble, Paris 1 Pantheon Sorbonne-IEDES, AMU: Faculty of Law-Institute of International Humanitarian Studies, Faculty of Medicine, Faculty of Litterature, the Institute Public Management and Territorial Governance (IMPGT-AMU), Paul Valery University Montpellier III and the American, University- Center of Provence.
13 continuing education services for health and social professionals, international solidarity actors, and researchers and academics in France, Africa and Asia
(As such, we are registered in France as a training organization)
Two development education, citizenship and solidarity projects
in partnership with international development NGOs, popular education associations, academic associations and schools. These projects ended in 2016 and 2017.
In this context, we have in particular supported (skills sponsorship) the creation and implementation of the European Network of Sea Rescue Associations SOS Mediterranée in Germany, France and Italy (www.sosmediterranee.org) in order to provide international humanitarian assistance to shipwrecked people and to promote the rights of refugees in Europe and in the Mediterranean region.
Functioning and autonomy of the network
On the basis of these activities, our original economic model relies on self-financing based on commercial services aiming at a wide variety of clients, whose sociology is close to that of our membership and whose diversity ensures the reduction of the risk of dependence, and supplemented by grants (5% of the 2016 budget).
This self-financing makes it possible today to remunerate the co-operators and to finance missions of general interest: education for citizenship and solidarity, sponsorship of skills for humanitarian NGOs (Santé Sud, SOS Méditerranée), innovative research incubator (currently dedicated to the fight against malaria and against cholera), as well as the transversal activities necessary for the proper functioning of the structure:
- Mobilization and animation of the network
- Communication (website)
- Accounting Management and Administration
