OSUN Policy Labs

The “Learning by Doing: Policy Labs and Civic Engagement” programme builds bridges between academic policy research curriculums and organizations, practitioners and policy makers working on global challenges of sustainable and peaceful development.

The programme promotes engaged scholarship and innovative pedagogies to advance student learning and faculty exchange in policy and practice through practice-based applied research in partnership with external organizations, typically civil society, NGOs, INGOS, the UN and its specialized agencies, and private sector.  The OSUN partners involved design a joint curriculum for the policy labs and conduct them locally.


The initiative is supported by the Open Society University Network (OSUN) and hosted by CEU’s Department of Public Policy.
