Home/Faculty & Research/Center for Public Management and Public Policy

With the purpose of bolstering its work in the field of Public Policy and Administration, in 2019, Insper unified its research and knowledge-generation fronts of activity in the public policy and administration areas by launching the Center for Public Management and Public Policy (CPMPP) (CGPP, for its acronym in Portuguese). 

The initiative brings together the Center for Public Policy (CPP) — which had already consolidated its position in 10 years of operation — with teaching and knowledge-dissemination activities on Public Policy and Administration. They are carried out in Undergraduate, Graduate, and Executive Education programs. 

“We say that the CGPP is the CPP 2.0. In it, each area involved delivers what it does best,” states André Luiz Marques, Executive Coordinator of the CGPP. “For instance, administrative activities, which previously consumed researchers’ time, move to the Center’s executive team. It allows them to focus on the activity in which they add more value to society. With that, we are able to produce increasingly rich and dense content”, Marques explains. 

With the mission of improving Brazilian society by developing people and generating knowledge in public policy and administration, the CGPP adds to generation and propagation initiatives. The Center does so always based on evidence for the design, implementation, management, and evaluation of public policies, contributing to economic and social development at municipal, state, and federal levels. To this end, it has a vision of a Brazil more engaged in quality public debates, better public policies, and trained public leaders and managers. 

Research and knowledge generation 

Through its new expanded scope, CGPP will assist four chairs, three research centers, two hubs, and a knowledge-generation network. Get to know each one better: 

Ruth Cardoso Chair: focused on research on public policy: education, labor market, health and socio-environmental impact.

Instituto Ayrton Senna Chair: research for the development of public policy in the area of education..

Instituo Unibanco Chair: research on education in Brazilian high school. 

Lemann Foundation Chair:  collaboration with top researchers in applied economics in Brazil and in the world, with a practical bias and connected with the public challenges of our country, in addition to producing relevant knowledge and training students and researchers who can promote the difference in the positions in which they work. 

Center for Global Agribusiness: partnering with companies to produce knowledge in the field of business strategy. 

Center for Regulation and Democracy: foster the research and debate on the relations between the regulation in the broad sense and democracy. 

Brazilian Center for Research Applied to Early Childhood: center linked to the São Paulo State Research Support Foundation (FAPESP). It was born as an initiative of the Science for Childhood Group (NCPI), which brings together seven institutions around the objective of promoting the improvement of quality of life during early childhood.

Insper Metricis:  focused on studies of organizational strategies and management practices for projects with the potential to generate high socio environmental impact. 

Group of Racial Studies: promotion of initiatives and empirical studies to assist in the Brazilian racial debate. 

Network for Educational Public Policy Design: support public managers with the production, organization and teaching of scientific knowledge to design educational policies. 

In the last three years alone, the Chairs, Research Centers, and Hubs under the CGPP umbrella have produced 36 scholarly articles and 28 book chapters, besides three full-length books. 

Teaching and knowledge dissemination 

Within the scope of knowledge dissemination, the Center offers elective courses in our Undergraduate Programs, Professional Masters in Public Administration, Advanced Program in Public Administration, Advanced Program in Journalism, and Executive Education Programs. 

The elective courses offered in our Undergraduate Programs make up the Integrated Public Policy and Administration Track. In it, Business Administration, Economics, and Engineering students can explore more specific interests from the first semesters onwards, in the courses Laboratório de Impacto Socioambiental (Socio-Environmental Impact Lab), Gestão Metropolitana (Metropolitan Administration), and Políticas Públicas Aplicadas à Educação (Public Policies Applied to Education). 

From the 7th semester onwards, it is possible to take the complementary electives Estratégia e Controle na Gestão Pública (Strategy and Control in Public Administration) and Ambiente Institucional e Político da Gestão Pública (Institutional and Political Environment of Public Administration). 

In 2019, we had 870 students in short-term courses and 117 in Graduate programs (lato sensu and masters). Also, 150 undergraduate students took elective courses in Public Policy. 

The CGPP is also responsible for organizing academic and scientific meetings. Since 2018, we have held over 80 events aiming at promoting public debate on both general economic policy issues and the evaluation of sector policies.
