It is argued that participants in the programme implicitly start from conflicting assumptions and views about how research may contribute to development, what kinds of public goods research may deliver, in which contexts CGIAR research should take place, and how (and by whom) research agendas should be set. Arguably, the enactment of the programme is shaped by identity conflicts at the level of individuals, the Centres and the Consortium.
