Research specialisation

We work end-to-end using qualitative and quantitative techniques across the public policy development cycle.

Evidence: We provide evidence base for policy design and decision making in governments and multilateral organisations.

Policy Development and Evaluation: We help enhance the design and development of public policies, programmes, and interventions at every stage of the lifecycle to deliver public value.

Behavioural and Communications: Our experts have a deep expertise and experience in understanding citizen’s behaviour and deconstructing the complex range of levers that can drive change.
