In delivering its policy and organizational development consulting, the Institute applies Political Economy Analysis (PEA) to generate and shape local knowledge and expertise on the political, structural, social and cultural issues critical to Uganda’s development and governance aspirations. With the PEA framework, PPI is positioned to develop as well as professionally advise its clients on how development interventions can contextualize the realism of the powerful role of bureaucrats and the contestation of power among political elites in the wider public policy processes.

The Institute will therefore undertake macroeconomic policy research and analysis that focuses on connecting together the countless policies, resources, and technologies that make economic development happen. The Institute will be guided by its ideology of Doing Development Differently, which appreciates the need for continuous improvement of its processes and strategies to meet or even exceed stakeholder and client expectations.
