About The Broker

Far too much knowledge that could help solve today’s challenges remains unused. But good knowledge does not automatically result in good policies and a better world. Knowledge brokering is needed in making knowledge policy-relevant.

The Broker aims to uncover knowledge, link its stakeholders, and make it contribute to inclusive, sustainable and evidence-based policy making. Our work specializes in the fields of Human Security, Inclusive Economy and Sustainable Governance.

What we do

For more than ten years our knowledge brokers have specialized in connecting policy makers, researchers, practitioners, and the private sector. The Broker’s continued engagement with these groups means we are up to date on the latest developments in the field; know who should be at the table; and can leverage those insights to enhance your impact for a more inclusive and sustainable world. The Broker offers a range of services that are tailored to your needs. We have experience with short-term projects that deliver results within a week and with long-term programmes. Please have a look at our Services page to learn more about what we offer.

Find inspiration

Our projects have contributed to effective policies and practices for social, economic and political inclusion and sustainability. As pioneering knowledge brokers since 2007 we have worked for -and partnered with- a great variety of government bodies, NGOs, universities and think tanks. Jointly, we have connected, synthesized and mapped available knowledge. Our overview of projects showcases our work from the past decade.

From printed magazine to online knowledge hub

Did you know The Broker started out as a printed magazine for international development professionals? Today, this ‘old’ The Broker remains an important part of our identity. This is reflected in our online magazine where articles are published by our staff and our vast network of experts. Our magazine supports the main aim of our organization: sharing unexpected, new or broader perspectives on matters that can make global policies more inclusive and sustainable.
