Research Centres are used to foster a supportive and creative research environment, to maximise synergies across the staff body, to organize seminars and to initiate external grant bids. They endeavour to combine intellectual rigor and policy relevance through research, publications and seminars that offer insights into the interplay between the social, political, academic and analytical worlds.
