Research at GIST

Researchers involved in policy studies are always required to share information with practitioners engaged in policy planning/drafting, and implementation, and to make use of it in updating awareness of issues and in the search for new research topics. For the practitioner side, too, the drafting and evaluation of evidence-based policy, confirmation of theoretical validity, and understanding of global policy directions are becoming mandatory requirements.

The GIST Program invites front-line researchers and practitioners inside and outside Japan as lecturers, calls for participation from government, industry, academia and others, organizes GIST Seminars to present and discuss research findings, and provides opportunities for communication and network-building among researchers and practitioners.

GIST conducts research projects on the policy issues by utilizing these networks as well as collaborating with policy makers and practitioners engaging in actual policy making and implementation.
