Research is integral to fulfilling our School's mission to train and educate the next generation of Asian leaders and policymakers and, thereby, contribute to raising standards of governance throughout the region and even farther afield. Since the School was established in 2004, we have recruited strong faculty from some of the best institutions around the world. In addition, we have launch four centers of research excellence, whose leaders have a proven track record in research and publication. We have also integrated into the School the Institute of Policy Studies, which, since 1988, has been the leading institution for research on policy, governance and other aspects of Singapore's development.
The Compendium includes three features: books, research centres, and faculty. This format will allow the School's friends, supporters, and stakeholders to become better acquainted with the collective research of the School and the research projects of individual faculty members and research fellows.
