CPS (Center for Social Policy)
The mission of FGV Social is to contribute to inclusive development in Brazil, connecting applied research to the debate within society and to the implementation of public policies. Addressing the most pressing Brazilian social issues in an integrated way, it acts to diffuse knowledge and inspire new inclusive practices. It is responsible for providing training and specialized advice for projects in different areas, in partnership with government entities, companies and civil society organizations, in Brazil and abroad.
Through empirical research, in particular that based on large public microdatabases, and through the design and evaluation of public policies, FGV Social believes it can identify and promote new transformations in society. The approach aligns several actors and instruments, in order to holistically improve different dimensions of the day to day life of the population.
