Rebecca Freeth is a dialogue facilitator, researcher and writer. The joys and challenges of meaningful collaboration have been a source of interest and practice for many years. She has initiated and supported long-term multi-sector dialogue and action projects and also specializes in working collaborating towards uncertain futures. Much of her work has been located in post-apartheid South Africa, which is her primary home. She teaches on numerous university courses for under- and postgraduate students, as well as a ‘systems thinking for social change’ summer school. Her recently completed doctoral research, in which she tracked an interdisciplinary collaboration in the field of sustainability science for three years, has deepened her understanding of dynamics of collaboration in research teams. Rebecca is currently a senior fellow at the Institute for Advanced Sustainability Science (IASS), in Potsdam Germany.
