The Center for Policy Design and Governance
The Computational Institutional Science Lab is an independent affiliate of the Center for Policy Design and Governance at Syracuse University. The Center for Policy Design and Governance fosters integration in policy, political and computational sciences in research and instruction to help scientists, practitioners and future public service leaders understand and address existing and evolving governance challenges. In addition to the CISL, the Center is home to the Policy Design Studio and the Institutional Grammar Research Initiative, another affiliated entity. The Policy Design Studio provides hands-on training and evidence-based analysis on policy design, the engagement of government and non-government stakeholders in policy formulation, and policy implementation. The Institutional Grammar Research Initiative convenes scholars from around the world who study and practice institutional analysis. The Center is also the institutional host to the Policy Studies Journal.
