Our areas of expertise
Our research agenda is informed by global and regional developments, particularly those associated with the Asian Century, and how country specific and regional public policy will need to adapt and change. Within this overarching focus, we concentrate on the two key areas:
1. Governance and regulation
Designing better governing institutions and improving policy-making and policy performance. For example:
- Fitness for purpose public sector reform
- Building innovation capacity: creating better mechanisms for public sector performance management
- Public financial management
2. Democracy and politics
Using different types of evidence and new approaches, and managing competing perspectives. For example:
- Leading with legitimacy and accountability
- User-centered policy design and implementation
- Identifying and developing new workforce capabilities
