Public Governance Research - Institute on Governance

Public Governance Research

Take the people’s pulse to deepen understanding, build trust, and deliver brilliantly

Applied research is central to IOG’s mission and helps enhance public governance.

From environmental scans, trend analyses, and opinion research to modelling, interviews, facilitated workshops and comparative analysis, we can help you and your organization better serve the people who are counting on you.

We produce discussion papers and reports, analytical tools and models with real world applicability in advisory and teaching contexts.

We have also provided expert testimony to parliamentary committees and can help you do the same.
