Who we are

The Institute of Governance Studies is a research, training and teaching institute at BRAC University, Dhaka, Bangladesh. For IGS, the concept of governance is best defined as the sum total of the institutions and processes by which society orders and conducts its collective or common affairs. BRAC, one of the largest NGOs in the world and the sponsor of BRAC University, has been active in administering innovative and effective development operations as well as research on development since 1972. The need for an exclusive institute equipped with recent innovations and practices in public policy and management of the contemporary world for the future leaders of Bangladesh became obvious in the 21st century. BRAC University established the then "Centre for Governance Studies" in 2005 (as of July 2007, the ‘Institute of Governance Studies') as a pioneering institute in Bangladesh on Governance, offering a post-graduate degree, professional training, and undertaking research in areas of governance and development.
