What We Do
Research & Policy Analysis:
- Governments and businesses are often reluctant to conduct relevant research and evaluate existing policies. This is largely due to entrenched interests and lack of expertise, but also because of a failure to appreciate the significance of such undertakings.
- Caspian Associates' network of academics and professionals, trained particularly in research and policy analysis, can uniquely assist clients in these areas. We often insist on beginning our consulting services with a rapid appraisal of our clients' situations.
- We employ a variety of research and analysis techniques to arrive at the best understanding of the status quo and to provision support for the conceptualization of appropriate solutions. We use interviews with key decision makers, field research, and other evaluation methodologies. While sophisticated, our techniques are made to fit local capabilities, as we often involve individuals at the community level.
