This programme aims to train the next generation of thought leaders with the analytical skills and substantive knowledge needed to generate, evaluate, and communicate research in public policy. It provides advanced training for candidates to assume positions in academic institutions, international organisations, governments and NGOs with significant research commitments.

Generous scholarships, in addition to access to a range of teaching and research assistantships, are available. Admission to this programme is highly competitive. Only about six-eight candidates are admitted every year.
