Development Policy Research Centre
The Development Policy Research Centre (DPRC) facilitates cutting edge multidisciplinary research across the School of Humanities, Social Sciences and Law (SHSSL) to engage in evidence-based policy making and public discussion. The centre is structured to disseminate its findings through publications, seminars, workshops, conferences and policy advocacy forums. Through DPRC, SHSSL expects to develop a culture of consolidated academic research, integrate the knowledge into classroom teaching materials and establish collaborative linkages with domestic and international research institutions.
SHSSL is widely regarded as a school of meritable academic repute, both within Pakistan and internationally. Its faculty has an established track record of excellence in academic and applied research, including collaborative research networks with reputed national and international research institutions. Several faculty members are also providing advisory services on important forums.
DPRC’s vision is to harness knowledge for change. In the coming years, DPRC will provide a platform to channel this expertise towards sustained thematic research work and contribute to evidence-based policy making and public discussion. The research will be disseminated amongst policymakers, politicians, the private sector and academia.
