Research Centers

Purpose-driven Thought Leadership

The Institute’s thought leadership is grounded on the efforts of its endowed research centers. These centers create venues for our program participants and the general public to exchange ideas and expertise, discuss current issues, recommend policies, and propose action.

We established the centers to give support to activities such as public lectures, seminars, workshops, and conferences through the generosity of social investors, who share the same mission and objectives as the centers.

The results of these activities have been translated into publications in the form of policy papers, occasional papers, policy briefings, lecture proceedings, case studies, and books.
