Call for Proposals on Policy Research

The workshop on “Building Capacity To Do Policy Research” was held at CIDS on May 17, 2013 to develop the capacity to do policy researches among young faculty-researchers of UP and to write policy papers for publication. Faculties from UP Manila, Diliman, Baguio, Los Baños, and Open University attended the event.

The presentations featured four panels of experts from different academic disciplines. The panel consisted of Commissioner Cynthia Bautista of CHED, President Josef Yap of PIDS and UP professors, Dr. Perry Ong of Institute of Biology and Dr. Temario Rivera of Department of Political Science.

Policy research in Social Sciences, Education & Arts, Natural Sciences, and Economics were among the topics. Presenters discussed the issues and limitations in doing policy research. They noted that “without solid basic research, policy research will be impossible to do”. The important elements in writing and publishing policy research were also addressed.

At the end of the presentations, the participants partook in a workshop to discuss their expertise and ideas in doing research, in which they will submit a capsule proposal on a policy research they wish to undertake given that it must be a topic on any of the 4E framework of UP CIDS. (Click this link)
