The ADDUP project (Are Development Discrepancies Undermining Performance?) led by Prof Stuart Carr, Poverty Research Group, Massey University, New Zealand and Prof Mac MacLachlan of the Centre for Global Health & School of Psychology, Trinity College Dublin, has been featured as a case study in high impact research by its UK funders ESRC(and DFID) in their quarterly newsletter "Society Now" and on the research council's website.
The research looking at the effects of salary discrepancies between expatriate and local workers now calls into question the ability of conventional aid funding models to build genuine partnership and contribute capacity building when the terms on which people are employed are experienced as being unjust, demotivating and undermining of local workers.  The research was conducted in Malawi, Uganda, China, India, Papa New Guinea and the Solomon Islands.
