As the backbone of knowledge and understanding, research is a key facility that allows us to challenge misconceptions, address unanswered questions and better understand emerging realities. Every year, the Institute will dedicate in-house resources to delivering a set of research projects for public awareness and education.

Research areas are defined by the thematic priorities denoted in our four programmes. We take a multi-disciplinary and collaborative approach, joining forces with other institutions and external researchers to carry out case studies, field surveys, polls, mapping exercises and interviews.
