Policy-Oriented Research

IPC-IG provides research-based policy recommendations on poverty related issues through different publication series, from the popular One Pagers to the more technical Working Papers. IPC-IG’s publications are released in English but translated versions can be found in Spanish, French, Portuguese, Chinese, Arabic, Italian, Turkish and Bahasa (Indonesia).

  • Policy in Focus is the flagship publication of the International Policy Centre for Inclusive Growth, a magazine that seeks to synthesize policy debates and discussions, educate and increase awareness about specific development themes.  Each issue does so via the collection of articles from specialist contributors with a diverse range of perspectives and opinions about a specific subject.  Issue themes span a diverse subject matter such as the growing middle classes in the developing world, to Protagonist Women and Youth and Employment in the BRICS nations.


  • Working Papers published through the IPC explore development themes in an in-depth manner (word count)
  • Policy Research Briefs published through the IPC present ideas, arguments and analyses in a concise effective manner (word count)
  • The IPC-IG One-Pager is an extremely popular publication that seeks to  introduce readers to an idea or concept explored more in depth in a separate larger publication (i.e. Working Paper, journal article, book chapter, report  or project etc.). One pagers effectively allow for an introductory summary of a larger piece of work to be disseminated in an easier to consume format. A Series of One-Pagers are used to track larger works in progress serving as progress reports, or rather a series of publications covering a certain thematic area.
