The Nur Center for Research and Policy aims to develop human resource capacity and generate research, which will contribute to human development at the national, regional, and international level for enhancing social well-being through informed policy and reformed practice.  NCRP has partnered with many organizations locally and internationally in the health, education, and social sector, offering services through a consortium of trainers and consultants, who pool their strengths to offer capacity enhancement, research, project management, and consulting. The Center currently has access to a full-time faculty of more than 200 professionals who are technical/subject specialists with diverse backgrounds, a program management staff to implement its projects, and the state of the art, purpose-built infrastructure and facilities. NCRP further facilitates evidence-based policy development and provides a forum that promotes critical thinking, freedom of ideas, and an independent quest for fact-finding. It has emerged as a think tank working as catalyst and manager of change to bring about social and economic empowerment of underserved communities and enhancing the social well­ being through informed policy and reformed practice.  The Center undertakes grounded research to generate evidence that helps the policymakers in finding innovative solutions to the challenges being faced by the policymakers, which reinvigorate the traditional paradigm of education and practice by establishing a blend of global best practices that are blended in the local context. NCRP promotes linkages and collaborations to encourage knowledge sharing and optimal utilization of existing resources.
