Core Research Focus

The ongoing research that the Wilberforce International School advances on skills, methods and specific developmental policies provides intellectual capital to its main training programs. The School focuses on developmental needs of countries with large populations in conditions of poverty and underdevelopment mainly located in Asia, Africa, the Middle East, and Latin America. WISPAD’s core research emphasizes issues related to conditions of underdevelopment, the optimization of public services, as well as the design and implementation of effective policies in key developmental areas. These include,  health care, environmental health, sanitation, nutrition, housing, urban planning, education, job creation, e-governance, and the integration of advanced information technologies with public policy.

Emphasis on Lessons from Best International Practices

The Wilberforce International School also endeavors to become a center for methodic learning of successfully implemented strategies to mitigate poverty and promote sustainable development globally. Under the form of case studies, the School gathers, systematizes, and disseminates international lessons on the design and implementation of successful public policies, as well as the best administrative and managerial practices of public organizations and social enterprises around the world.

Multidisciplinary Research Approach

WISPAD’s research follows a multidisciplinary approach that encompasses the formal investigation of tools and skills required for policy analysis and implementation within a solid ethical system of Biblical values and beliefs. In this context, the analytical and practical research of best policies and strategies for international development and poverty alleviation is combined with ongoing research on ethical and moral issues. As one of the main directions within this multidisciplinary approach, WISPAD’s research focuses on the neurobehavioral effects that underlying values and beliefs have on processes of decision making and preference formation associated with individual, socioeconomic and political development.
