Our Methods

Drawing insights from various disciplines, Inclusion Economics research focuses on a set of linked activities:

1. Innovative data collection to identify who is failing to access resources they need, and the invisible social and power structures that constrain opportunity.

2. High-quality research to understand how to promote and sustain inclusive and accountable institutions.

3. Close engagement with stakeholders ranging from government officials and local researchers to marginalized individuals to ensure research addresses policy-relevant questions and provides timely insights.

4. Communication of data-driven insights to shape narratives and understanding on inclusion.
