Abstract and Keywords

During the past decade, there has been a rapid emergence of new global governance architectures at the meta-level seeking to address grand social challenges. At the meso-level, a set of specific global partnerships (between international organizations, national governments, and other strong actors) have been addressing concretely those social challenges. In a sense, these partnerships can be seen as innovative solutions to address some of those challenges. However, the extent to which these partnerships are able to generate the expected impact at the domestic level is an empirical question that remains open. This chapter provides a framework for analysing impact by focusing on three mediating factors at the domestic level; namely, the knowledge absorptive capacity of domestic actors, their organizational capacity, and the communicative capacity with which they articulate specific needs, as well as their visions for reform.

Keywords: grand social challenges, Product Development Partnerships, policy innovation, policy instruments, policy learning, Sustainable Development Goals
