The lab acts as Centre of excellence in public policy and governance in Nepal

The KU SOM Policy Lab (in short, Policy Lab) is the public policy think tank and a platform within Kathmandu University School of Management that aims to deal with public policy problems in Nepal in which specialist team, university students, and experts work in a creative space to analyze complex policies, evaluate them and recommend policy reformation that is needed to serve the interest of the general public. At Policy Lab programs are designed to ensure that policy scholars and practitioners have the opportunity to tackle socially relevant and topical policy issues, understand the interests of stakeholders, and develop concrete solutions with a method of policy design based on an approach grounded in the field. During the process, the lab keeps the marginalized and underprivileged section of the community at the center of public debate, dialogue, and discourse.
