IRGSC is both a policy research institute and think tank comprising a new generation of researchers, scientists, scholars, public intellectuals, and policy entrepreneurs based in Indonesia.  Established in 2012 with its headquarters in Kupang, East Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia, IRGSC’s regional focus includes Indonesia, Timor-Leste, and ASEAN countries. Being based in West Timor, Indonesia gives IRGSC the opportunity to also promote studies on Eastern and South Eastern Indonesia with a greater focus on East Nusa Tenggara studies.

Using empirically grounded evidence, IRGSC seeks to contribute to international, national and regional debates on resource governance, disaster governance,  climate adaptation, health policy, knowledge governance and development studies in general. IRGSC’s mission includes: promote evidence-based policy through capacity development of scientists, bureaucrats, local politicians, private business, NGO/CSO activists, community leaders. In addition to our research clusters, we seek to establish a homegrown development of East Nusa Tenggara regional studies. In addition to research and knowledge production activities, working through civil society, IRGSC contributes social change in Indonesia.
