Institute for Advanced Policy Research

The Institute for Advanced Policy Research (IAPR) is a public policy research institute that was created in 1994 at the University of Calgary. The mandate of IAPR is to improve the quality of public policy research produced by the University of Calgary and then to provide the research to individuals who study or work within the field of public policy research. The Institute for Advanced Policy Research places an emphasis on the creation of a solid, analytical, evidenced-based foundation for public policy discourse by applying theoretically-based knowledge to practical application. This is made possible by drawing together existing public policy expertise from an array of departments and faculties across the campus at the University of Calgary. IAPR conducts specialized workshops, conferences, public lectures, and has its own publication program.

The objectives of the Institute for Advanced Policy Research include completing research in a global context; producing public policy research that is significant at the international, national, provincial, and local levels; engaging senior undergraduate and graduate students in the research process; increasing external funding for public policy research; and, sharing research results with all levels of government, business, and the general community.

There are five research focus groups: Spatial Activities; Political and Legal Institutions; Government Finances and Public Choice; Labour Markets and the Workplace; and, Resources and the Environment.
