The PRAKARSA is a research and capacity-building institution established to create a democratic, just, and prosperous society through ideas development, policy and institutional reforms, and evidence-based problem-solving innovations. The PRAKARSA focuses on fiscal policy, social policy, and sustainable development issues.
The PRAKARSA conducts research activities, policy analysis, and training on a wide range of topics related to welfare issues. In executing its various activities, The PRAKARSA consistently adopts collaborative and engagement approaches to collaborate with varied parties: governments, parliaments, civil society organizations, universities, think tanks, international organizations, private sectors, development donor agencies, and mass media.
We believe that this multi-stakeholder approach will strengthen our works and initiatives in the knowledge production and dissemination as well as the evidence-based policymaking process. We also believe that networking will facilitate and reinforce one another. Therefore, we have received support from various donors and participated in multifarious initiatives with The PRAKARSA partners.
