How We Support Governments

The Chandler Institute of Governance (CIG) support governments in building leadership, institutions, and public service capabilities through training programmes, advisory partnerships, and knowledge creation.

Governance Projects & Partnerships

Governments today face deep and complex challenges, and have to meet the demands and expectations of an increasingly diverse and vocal set of stakeholders. While each country is unique, there is often value in understanding and drawing insights from the experiences of other governments and countries.

CIG provides support in addressing these policy and governance challenges. We form collaborative partnerships with government agencies and leaders, and work together to provide insights and policy options grounded in rigorous research and tradecraft, and a deep understanding of the context of public administration.

Peer learning and dialogue also supports leadership development, and enables direct transmission of knowledge and wisdom between government experts and practitioners. CIG offers platforms such as facilitated dialogues, mentorship opportunities and communities of practice, to support these goals.

Chandler Academy of Governance

The Chandler Academy of Governance (CAG) complements and supports CIG’s work by developing and delivering training programmes for government leaders.  

CAG’s training programmes are practitioner-oriented, and based on application rather than theory. They are designed to equip government leaders with capabilities required to meet the realities and demands of public service work. In line with this, programmes are co-designed and delivered by experts with deep government experience.
