Dr Gerard Prinsen PhD, MA

Senior Lecturer

School of People, Environment and Planning

Over the last few years, my involvement with these professional and academic networks has been bringing new ideas, experiences and opportunities to my teaching and my research at Massey:

  • Between 2011-2015, I worked in a research project supported by New Zealand's Marsden Fund and France's Fonds Pacifique into the impact of aid on sovereignty of Pacific islands. The team is led from Victoria University (VUW), and includes the University of the South Pacific (USP), and the Université de la Nouvelle-Calédonie (UNC). Currently, we are shifitng our focus on to the rivalry between islands and how this affects the islands' sovereignty and political integrity.
  • For the 2011-2015 period, I worked as an adviser to the Dutch Consortium for Rehabilitation (DCR), operating in six post-conflict states in Africa. We are currently working to develop a programme to enhance collaboration between international NGOs and Africa's national universities.
  • For the 2014-2017 period I am a member of an international research network centred around Tanzania, investigating the food safety risks of meat for urban consumers as well as the economic opportunities for livestock owners. Here is my occasional blog on my research with butchers and meat-sellers.

I use and build bridges between development practioners and development researchers and I believe public debate, public discussion, and public speaking about development issues can be pillars under those bridges:

  • I am also a founding member of the Massey University Security, Politics and Development Group (2015), engaging in research on the dynamics between security, political and development issues in the Asia Pacific region.
  • And as “former aid worker”, I have discussed aid policies with Jane Silloway Smith from the Maxim Institute (a conservative NZ think tank) and Geoff Bertram, economist at Victoria University as you can hear on this audio from Radio New Zealand.
  • I believe experiences from international development agencies can contribute in perhaps surprising ways to other or wider debates. See this musical recording (4'41") of a presentation in which I offer a historical framework to understand western Jihadists.
  • I also believe some humour can suit public speaking about development issues. See this video recording (20'33") of a talk I gave on the role of civil society in aid policies. (As you will see; I am invariably serious about my shirts.)
  • In the course of time, I have worked professionally in the following African countries: Benin, Botswana, Burkina Faso, Ghana, Mali, Mozambique (where I was also appointed as Honorary Consul for the Netherlands), Tanzania, and Uganda. In addition, I have experienced working in Nicaragua and the Maldives.

For about 25 years, I have worked with development programmes in Africa; as manager, trainer, researcher, or evaluator. Most of my activities relate to local governance, particularly education and health services. Since a few years, I also engage with aid programmes in the Pacific.

The use of participatory methods in programme-design, policy-making and research are central elements in my activities. Other important elements are the design and ownership of indicators to measure change.

I am happy Massey is willing to employ me part-time. This enables me to remain professionally involved with another university and aid agencies, building mutually enriching networks.

Research Expertise

Research Interests

I am interested in using and building bridges between the work of practitioners and the work of researchers in three spheres:

Development programmes in practice

  • Designing indicators. (See this paper for an analysis of the background and the technical, political and epistemological challenges in the use of indicators for development programmes.)
  • Testing innovations in development management instruments. (See this paper about field experiences with the Theory-of-Change approach in planning development programmes in post-conflict contexts – contrasting it with the more predominating logical framework approach.)

Development policies and politics

  • Local polities and small island states negotiating development sovereignty. (Click here for a paper on policy sovereignty in the Pacific.)
  • Local communities or ethnic minorities defining development policies and priorities. (See this article I wrote as a practitioner in 2000 and which - to my great surprise - I found again as an academic when it was reprinted in books in 2003, 2006, and 2011.)

Teaching and researching development work

  • Using extensive simulation games to teach postgraduate students about the practice of policy-making, implementation, and evaluation in development work. (See this paper about my experiences at Victoria University.)
  • Researching the effects and effectiveness of the 'supervision experiences' of African doctoral students and their supervisors at Massey and Victoria Universities, with Victoria University colleagues and funded by AKO - the National Centre for Tertiary Teaching Excellence. (Click here for the project document.)
  • Using texts - found in old filing cabinets as well as in cyber space - for research purposes. (Click for a book chapter on methodological considerations, especially around maintaining a text's 'contextual integrity'.)
  • Whenever possible, I collaborate or align with individual postgraduate students to turn work that's already been created for educational purposes into products or services that may be useful for the wide community of researchers and practitioners. See this prezi by Gisela Purcell on work we did together.

My activities around indicators are relevant for both researchers as well as practitioners. This comes together practically in an interactive database of over 300 very diverse documents about indicators. This article outlines the background and purpose of the database and this one-minute video clip highlights its content. Please contact me for obtaining free access to this database.

Research Opportunities

  • Internships and Junior Researcher positions for the Dutch Consortium for Rehabilitation (DCR).  (Throughout the year.) DCR comprises branches of CARE, Save the Children, ZOA, and HealthNet TPO. It operates in African post-conflict states: Burundi, DR Congo, Liberia, Uganda, South Sudan, and Sudan. Contact me for info.

Keywords

  • Africa, local governance, health and education services. This is driven by my past and on-going professional engagement with international aid policies and aid work. If you are thinking of research in or about Africa; I will buy the first cup of coffee.
  • Local polities and sovereignty. One of my personal discoveries in my research was the enduring resilience of local polities in Africa and I see a similar dynamic in the research on aid and sovereignty in the Pacific. 'Small is beautiful' needs an upgrade. If you want to research whether 'small is strong', please come and do some arm wrestling with me.
  • Participatory research methods and development indicators. Here I am not just interested in the creative and interactive application of participatory research, but also in the challenges posed by upscaling participatory methods to feed into policy-making and research. If you want to quantify qualitative research, let's count some beans in my office.

Project Title: Use of development indicators

Indicators - as instruments to measure change - originate in economics and business management. Gross Domestic Product (GDP), for example, is an indicator of economic change, and many businesses use performance indicators. However, since the early 2000s indicators are also, and increasingly, used to measure more complex matters such as political sovereignty, community resilience, environmental sustainability, or state fragility. Some counting suggests the number of indicators rose from 132 in the year 2000, to 5,340 in 2010. Gerard Prinsen and Gisele Purcell sampled over 300 documents on indicators (see this paper http://mro.massey.ac.nz/handle/10179/4950). They found - in a proportion of about 3:2:1 - most documents discuss technical-operational issues of indicators, fewer have attention for political-strategic aspects, and fewer yet reflect on more conceptual issues. Another principle that divides indicators into different categories is the way in which the design of indicators - also an instrument to 'construct' knowledge - involves primary stakeholders. Indicators can be designed without stakeholders, with all stakeholders, or with only one stakeholder. Each design process has clear consequences for the character of the indicators. The 300 documents have been placed in a growing database that organises these documents in various user-oriented categories. Organisations or individuals can access this database after contacting Gerard Prinsen.

My classes are quite often a mix of 'training in technical skills' followed by 'critical reflection on the application'. As an example, you may want to sit back and check out this audio-visual recording of a postgraduate class on the design and application of logframes as an important management tool in development practice (47'37").

Here's a thought I found worth sharing: “If the student is not better than the teacher, then the teacher is a failure.”  (Allen Ginsberg, quoting a Buddhist saying)
