Institutions

Sustainable development depends on a framework of stable, competent, and just institutions that can create sound policies, which serve populations effectively and equally.

UNU research supports the development of institutional and government capacity through technical cooperation, research co-creation, and by building national and international communities of practice in the global South. UNU serves as a convener of collaboration, bringing together educators, government officials, policymakers and civil society to help ensure institutions better understand the issues facing the communities they represent.

In post-conflict settings, UNU experts are illuminating how to overcome the institutional dynamics that develop during violent conflicts, so that state-building and economic development trajectories can be realigned to peace and prosperity.
