The Center for Policy Design and Governance
The Institutional Grammar Research Initiative is an independent affiliate of the Center for Policy Design and Governance at Syracuse University. The Center for Policy Design and Governance
fosters integration in policy, political and computational sciences in research and instruction to
help scientists, practitioners and future public service leaders understand and address existing and evolving governance challenges. In addition to the IGRI, the Center is home to the Policy Design Studio and the Computational Institutional Science Lab, another affiliated entity. The Policy Design Studio provides hands-on training and evidence-based analysis on policy design, the engagement of government and non-government stakeholders in policy formulation, and policy implementation. The Computational Institutional Science Lab is an international hub for developing and applying computational methods to study how societies are governed. The Center is also the institutional host to the Policy Studies Journal.
