The Master of Research and Public Policy (MRPP) is a graduate course developed collaboratively by PASGR and 12 African universities for public policy practitioners and students in Africa. It is uniquely designed to meet the continent’s needs.
The programme was formally launched on August 12, 2015 in an event that was presided over by Kenya’s Cabinet Secretary for the National Treasury, Mr Henry Rotich, and the Chief Justice, Dr Willy Mutunga.
Other dignitaries at the event were: The deputy chair of the Education Committee in the Kenyan Parliament, Hon Julius Kibiwott Melly, vice chancellors and academics, and PASGR Board member Ambassador Prof Judith Bahemuka. It was also attended by students already enrolled in the programme, researchers and policy practitioners from NGOs, development partners and PASGR staff.
