All organizations, including governments, need to take decisions at all levels. Such decisions need to be based primarily on evidence, although other factors also play a role. Policy researchers collect, generate, analyze or synthesize the evidence to come up with recommendations for policy.



A novel, highly interdisciplinary programme that will strengthen skills for evidence-based
policy research.

Comprehensive curriculum with an eclectic mix of courses including:

  • public policy analysis concepts;
  • economic reasoning and public policy;
  • evidence-informed policy;
  • statistics; programming; data visualization;
