We are pleased to announce that Diana Dajer, DPhil Candidate in Socio-Legal Studies, was recently appointed as part of the research board of the newly launched Global Participatory Budgeting Hub. This new organisation aims to improve and expand participatory budgeting (PB) around the world by addressing common challenges and opportunities faced by PB implementers and supporters. The PB Global Hub coordinates research, shares learning, and develops resources, building on the expertise of the PB community. The PB Global Hub created a Global PB Support Board and a Global PB Research Board. The PB Support Board will guide and prioritize work to improve PB practice and impacts, while the PB Research Board will coordinate global research on PB and its impacts. Meet the boards here. Diana's research studies the influence of participatory budgeting on political inclusion in processes of conflict transformation.
