Public Policy

We have worked nationally and internationally on the development, analysis and review of major policy frameworks. Almost all our projects require an integrated analysis of the existing research, quantitative outcome and output data, and qualitative data on process and outcome.

We also produce implementation strategies, learning and development resources, guides and assessment tools to facilitate the successful implementation of policy frameworks and goals.

Some examples of projects we have undertaken in Public Policy are detailed below.
