Based within the University of Oxford, we work in close partnership with local experts and global collaborators to assist policymakers in delivering on their economic and development priorities.
We respond to requests from government decision-makers and their senior advisors for support at critical junctures, preferably as part of a longer-term strategic engagement.
We provide timely, context-sensitive advice, grounded in research and evidence, and nested within local and global political and economic realities.
We take a "how to do" rather than "what to do" approach to enable change. We learn from our research and experience in many countries to strengthen the quality of economic policy-making and its politically informed implementation, respecting local circumstances.
While we do not have access to resources for implementing policy change, our work is pro-bono and independent of international organisations and donors. We value trusting relationships and mutual respect.
