Currently engaged in more than 12 African countries, PASGR works to enhance research excellence in governance and public policy that contributes to the overall wellbeing of women and men. In partnership with individual academics and researchers, higher education institutions, research think tanks, civil society organisations, business and policy communities both in the region and internationally, PASGR supports the production and dissemination of policy relevant research; designs and delivers suites of short professional development courses for researchers and policy actors; and facilitates the development of collaborative higher education programmes. Our vision is 'a vibrant African social science community addressing the continent’s public policy issues’. PASGR’s three core programmes bring together the right mix of universities, research institutions, government, policy actors, researchers and academics to: Establish and sustain partnerships at national/regional and international levels for advancing research, higher education and training; Facilitate the creation of policy and research communities; Enhance the institutionalisation of a research culture in Africa’s universities and research organisations; and, Coordinate a collaborative Master of Research and Public Policy with universities in Africa PASGR is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organisation. PASGR’s Vision A vibrant African social science community addressing the continent’s public policy issues. PASGR’s Mission Advancing research excellence for governance and public policy in Africa. The 2014-2018 Strategic Plan The 2014-2018 Strategic Plan builds on a strong foundation laid over four years since PASGR’s establishment, to provide the road map for realisation of our vision of a vibrant African social science community addressing the continent’s public policy issues. This Plan is the result of the collaborative effort of the PASGR community, comprising staff at all levels, and the Board of Directors, including a major external review in 2013, as well as periodic reviews of the programmes by staff and partners. We are building a community of practice and thought, in excellent research and innovative high quality training, with the PASGR secretariat as a key facilitator. Moving forward, we will seek strategic and sustainable partnerships by strengthening the existing ones and forging new ones. PASGR’s priorities include: Creative outreach and communication to research and policy communities; rigorous, quality control across all programmes; and institutional and financial sustainability. We hope to measure the impact of our work, not by the number of people who benefit from PASGR’s programmes, but by how evidence is translated from research into social and public policy that addresses the current and future key development needs of Africa.
