Policy Briefs and Papers

UMI sets out to increase its relevance and uptake of its researches in policy formulation and management. One way of doing so is to develop, policy briefs.  A policy brief is a report targeted at Policy Makers, providing a practical, implementable, and comprehensive outcome of research prepared for the understanding of potential policy makers.  UMI through its policy researches, public policy dialogues and applied research projects has developed short, well-written, and well-designed policy messages, presented in ways that policymakers can absorb quickly and utilize.

Some of the policy briefs developed includes:
