That being said, while varying widely, partnerships are very complex and demanding to initiate and manage. These characteristics often pose challenges to partnerships to reach their objectives and developmental impacts, and to policy-makers wishing to promote and support them. More insights on the process underlying partnerships and in-depth analysis about the drivers and challenges of such partnerships, and about the process driving them should help addressing this. Ultimately, the aim is to highlight key aspects to take into account for partnerships to be effective.

As this paper summarises, four key dimensions emerge from the literature as being key to understanding

CSO-business partnerships. These are:

the nature of the partnership with regards to business strategy;

• the degree of partner engagement;

• the activities of the partnership and • the governance structures.

• The governance structures have received least attention. Further, the role of the institutional context on partnerships is rarely studied, although it has been observed that CSO-business partnerships tend to be rare in context marked by low governance, such as least developed countries - especially in cases of fragile or conflict affected states.

By connecting the above dimensions with a broad political economy framework, this paper sets out an approach to analysing partnerships that is hoped to go beyond discussions of success or failure to understanding the interests, incentives and underlying factors that ultimately define the likely success of the development community in moving from rhetoric to practice.
