Social Policy

ABOUT THE PROJECT

We generate research that allows us to contribute to changes in the social policy in Mexico that: abate poverty and inequality; contribute to the improvement of education, particularly through the successful implementation of the educational reform in Mexico; strengthen mechanisms for accountability and anti-corruption in the country; and take advantage of the migratory talent dispersion in Mexico that contributes to national development.

To reach these goals, we collaborate actively in the areas of political science, education, business and economics, demography and law.
