In June 2013, BRAC University Board of Trustees (BoT) merged the two prestigious institutes of BRAC University, Institute of Governance Studies (IGS) and BRAC Development Institute (BDI), into BRAC Institute of Governance and Development (BIGD) with a view to transforming the institute into a regional centre of research on governance and development issues; to make a better and unified institute as governance and development are interrelated; to provide lessons on good practices; to advocate for pro-poor policies; and undertake robust research initiatives in areas of governance and development. At your journey along the information highway, please take some time and have a look at our research publications and academic excellence.
