Improving lives through Technology, communications, research and development

The Global Strategy Network

We are a team of field researchers, analysts, programme implementers, software and machine learning engineers, data scientists, and thought leaders dedicated to doing development differently.

We combine cutting-edge technology with world-class analysis and participative programme design to deliver projects that improve lives.

TGSN team members hail from 10 countries bringing both local insight and recognised subject-matter expertise to our programmes.

what we do

We work at the intersection of technology, communications, research and development.

We partner with governments, the private sector and NGOs to design, implement, monitor and evaluate programmes that address some of the globe’s most pressing challenges.

how we do it

TGSN is jointly fuelled by people and technology. From recognised thought leaders to field researchers in remote areas, our team works together to assess and address some of the world’s most pressing issues.

Our experience has shown us that well-designed and applied technology can make data from complex environments easier to understand.

Thought Leaders

We draw from TGSN’s global network of experts to ensure our teams are equipped with the most appropriate analytical and methodological tools to design research and programmes. This network of behavioural scientists, policy makers, seasoned practitioners, and former government officials incudes leading experts in fields ranging from Countering Violent Extremism (CVE) to data science.

data science & machine learning

We apply cutting-edge data science and machine learning processes to data collected from the field, giving us unparalleled  insight into the communities where we work. By harnessing these computational tools, we can extract the highest possible value from each data point, reducing the burden and risk of field work and giving us an analytic edge.

Local Partnerships

We work alongside local organisations who are embedded in communities impacted by conflict. We trust and learn from their expertise, and build longstanding relationships based on mutual respect and trust. We link our local partners to our global network of experts, sharing capacities and skills as we built and implement projects together.

bespoke software

When we can’t find the technology off the shelf we need to verify, process, store or map data, we have the in-house capability to rapidly co-create software that we apply to our projects. We understand both the operational context and software engineering, ensuring our products are fit for purpose, however challenging the environment.

field research

Our network of field researchers convey actionable insights from our areas of operations. We work with skilled local teams who leverage their deep knowledge of social and political dynamics to conduct quantitative and qualitative research. From facilitated dyads between security actors and vulnerable youth to quantitative surveys assessing media consumption habits in conflict zones, our teams have expertise in collecting data from communities in fragile settings.
