The twin of objectives of the Centre to influence policy discourse and improve governance are achieved through rigorous research and stakeholder engagement across domains. Its strong evidence-based research has focused on government innovations, regulation, policy-making, administrative and organizational reform, public-private partnerships and IT in government.
