​Research​ Areas

Since its inception, the EAI has conducted policy-oriented research and convened a series of public dialogues on youth, urbanization, growth and inequality, urban food systems and extractive resources. Research at the EAI encompasses a variety of methods in inquiry or discovery of key issues relevant to policy, decision-making and stakeholder action. These methods include conventional research methods – literature reviews, qualitative and quantitative techniques; as well as other tools such as storytelling and photography to gather insights, experiential accounts and regular stories. The programme areas for the EAI and their concurrent objectives and prioritisations are based on the data, research and insights we have garnered. ​
