Inclusive institutions for socially just societies

Access to effective governance and justice structures is important. At CGD, we research and promote institutions and systems that recognise and value everybody’s rights, everybody’s situation and everybody’s needs. This means balancing responsibility with rights, as well as creating mechanisms which address power imbalances between those who have traditionally held positions of power and control, and those who do not.

Our research invests the effort in understanding what people need, what their aspirations are and how inclusive institutions can best respond.
