LKYSPP is dedicated to addressing critical and complex policy challenges in Asia and elsewhere using evidence-based research. Our cross-disciplinary faculty and research centres apply the highest standards of analytic rigour to real-world problem solving in public policy, international development and international affairs and actively engage with policy communities, media, global organisations and students to find actionable policy solutions in these areas. The school’s research is supported by a variety of sources, including highly competitive external grants.
