Research

Rigorous research that reflects the specific needs of countries and that generates correct evidence is central to the dynamics of debate to inform and influence national policies. The rigorous or quality research that the Aru Foundation carries out is framed within Bolivian structural agencies. They try to respond to the country's structural problems, providing a flow of evidence that informs the key actors in society, on issues of poverty and inequality and the labor market. They are within structural agendas that are intended to be fed by agendas in education, time use, democracy and gender; in addition to new agendas that consider joint work between low-income countries, such as African countries and others with similar realities and comparable capacities, already started with peer countries in Latin America on the issue of multidimensional poverty. These agendas are mainly driven by the joint work between the Monitoring and Evaluation Group and the Data Unit, positioning itself as a national reference in the collection of data and the design of evaluation of public policies, an intangible capital built by its extensive and rigorous investigative action highlighting impact evaluations of the main public programs within social policy during the last decade.
