An important facet of the Institute's core mission is to conduct research on governance and disseminate the findings to the public. Since 2006, the Institute publishes annual State of Governance in Bangladesh reports, policy papers, and studies of public institutions. The focus of Institute is applied research and policy analysis. The public policy research is designed to enhance the knowledge on governance and to constructively engage the government and the public stakeholders in the institutional reform process.

In addition to research responsibilities, the research team emphasises building capacity of young Bangladeshi scholars who have opportunities to work independently and with senior local and international faculty and to publish.
