    From t he perspective of t he United Nations Univer sity (UNU), this volume has particular resonance. In this, its fortieth anniversary year, t he UNU looks back at its history, dedicated from t he outset to ensuring that academic research directly addresses t he questions of most concern to t he United Nations. UNUs strengths lie at t he interface of evidence-based research and policy, based on t he premise that t he best policy has to be informed by evidence. Today, t he UNU con-tinues in its mission, pursuing research in five t hematic clusters: Peace, Security and Human Rights, Development Gover nance, Population and Health, Global Change and Sustainable Development, and Science, Technology and Society. It does this whilst at t he same time continuing to develop its role as a bridge between international and national policy makers and academia and as a vehicle for ensur-ing that key human development concerns are kept on t he international agenda.

    As such, it is with great pleasure that I write to support t he research of IDRC, SSHRC, GUNi and t heir partners in strengt hening community-university research partnerships. T e Global Univer sity Network for Innovation (GUNi) has, for over fifteen years, led an innovative agenda of work, supported by its three partner institutions, UNU, UNESCO and T e Catalan Association of Public Universities. Tis current volume is t he latest in a series of cutting-edge analy-ses of contemporary academic practice and innovative collaborative methodology. Alongside t he importance of developing research in key areas, it is also crucial that all of us working in this sector take a reflective stance regarding our methodologi-cal approac hes and more general ways of working. Volumes such as this one enable those of us engaged in research and research partnerships to evaluate our proce-dures and look towards developing ever more improved processes in t he future.

    Research partnerships are key to ensuring a dynamic and collaborative research agenda and to breaking free from traditional disciplinary and ot her boundaries to research excellence. Tis has been key to UNU strategic development, through collaborations both within and outside t he UNU system. One most recent exam-ple is t he UNU Migration Network. Tis network of over fifty experts in migra-tion research, based in UNU institutes worldwide, and coming from a range of t hematic and disciplinary backgrounds, was launc hed in 2013 from t he UNU Institute on Globalization, Culture and Mobility (UNU-GCM) in Barcelona. It already has a number of projects, involving both researchers from across t he network and external partners, and is continuing to develop new forms of partner-ships within t he migration field and beyond.

    Tis is an exciting moment for institutions of research and hig her education. T e GUNi mission of ensuring that universities develop under a vision of public service, r
