Thanks, Dan.

This sounds great.

With reference perhaps especially to the second point, what interaction with the standing ADHO ctte structure would you imagine?

I realise this has been a point that's floated back and forth for some time, and I ask because the ADHO ctte structure has representational issues that could come into play, as well as standing ctte mandates as well.

Subject: [globaloutlookDH-l] Tasks

Apologies for a third email in as many minutes. But I thought splitting the two big issues up might make them easier to digest.

In terms of tasks, I was thinking that there were two main ones: 
providing intelligence to ADHO (and the High Income Economies DH world in general) about opportunities and people in the relevant Mid and Low Income Economies and researching, discussing, and creating fora for discussing ways of integrating the two worlds more closely.

The first task really involves relying on our native intelligence and knowledge of people and institutions: GO::DH in this sense is really just a conduit through which we can pass on information about conferences, meetings, potential partners back and forth between the ADHO world and the world that is not part of ADHO.

The second is a little more actual work, and would involve trying to proactively discover and promote connections: for example, by organising sessions at conferences, thinking about special issues of journals or collections of essays on the topic, and so on.

There's a lot of good work already going on--we should be in closer contact with the people running THaT Camp Carrib, for example. But that kind of work it seems to me would fall into the second category.

What do you all think?
