Universities-Government Institutions Network╠ř(also known as CPPR Forum)

KRI formed the first strategic Universities-Government Intuitions Network in 2012 with an aim to conduct collaborative and comparative research on public policy in Southeast Asia, Australia and Korea. This network is specifically named to highlight its purpose as a Comparative Public Policy Research (CPPR) Forum of KRI. The CPPR Forum consists of research partners from Korea, Australia and eight Southeast Asian countriesÔÇÖ universities, government research institutes and policymakers.

CPPR ForumÔÇÖs primary activities are to conduct collaborative and comparative research on public policy challenges facing governments in Southeast Asia and to share the outputs of this research via symposiums and workshops. After three years of planning and following several pilot research projects managed by KRI, the CPPR Forum was formally formed through the inaugural CPPR Symposium held in Yangon in 2014. The operating arms of the CPPR Forum consist of advisory board members, research project directors and researchers from participating institutions. CPPR participants comprise key personnel from public policy reform agencies and distinguished scholars from participating countries.

The CPPR Forum and KRI conducted a collaborative research workshop on 6 November 2015, in Manila which was co-hosted by the Asia Development Bank and the Korea Foundation.

Members are senior researchers from universities and public research institutes, and senior policymakers from government bodies from eight countries in Southeast Asia, Korea and Australia.
