Our Research Approach
CERP brings together top international researchers and experts who engage with policy makers in Pakistan in order to address real-life challenges. For this, CERP uses its Smart Policy Design and Implementation (SPDI) framework in which data and evidence feed into effective solutions. Our empirical approach focuses on policy research based on sustained engagements between researchers and policy actors. These collaborations can then both generate frontier scholarship and lead to the design of feasible and effective policy. Our approach also includes training and communications activities to increase demand for empirically driven policy and build the capacity to carry it out.
