Institute of Government and Public Policy (IGOP)

The Institute of Government and Public Policy (IGOP) is a research center of the Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB), where it is based.

The IGOP promotes research, training and social transfer in the field of government and public policy from an interdisciplinary approach and, above all, with the ability to combine academic excellence with an impact on social reality. These two objectives are fully reflected in its activities: research and training.

We undertake both competitive research projects (projects essentially driven by the European Commission, the Government of Spain - R & D projects or others - or by the Government of the Generalitat of Catalonia) and applied research through agreements or specific commissions with various institutions and other entities. We have a broad research portfolio mainly focused on the study of the activities of public authorities and their relations with stakeholders. Currently our research areas are structured among two research groups URGOCIS (Urban Governance, Commons, Internet and Social Innovation) and AGAPP (Public Policy Analysis Management and Assessment).

We also combine a PhD Program in Politics Policies and International Relations with various masters’ degrees, postgraduate studies and other non-regulated teaching offers. Finally, the IGOP has its own School of Social and Urban Policy (IGOP School). This facility, located in the Nou Barris district of Barcelona, in addition to hosting the usual activities of a research center - such as visits of researchers, project meetings, study days or training activities -, is working as a place to generate processes of social transfer and shared construction of knowledge.
