FCS Policy Research Group (PRG)

FCS Policy Research Group (PRG)

The Policy Research Group (PRG) programme has been developed by the FCS, Grenada (FCS) to foster research excellence through the publication of policy research studies, in different Phases.


The launching of Phase I of the PRG programme was effected in November 2015, whereby the FCS had invited for research proposals from high calibre policy researchers and academics.


Policy researchers and academics are provided, under the PRG programme, a valuable platform and opportunity to inter-alia analyse the policies and market developmental needs for the non-banking financial services sector in Grenada.

Objectives

 

The broad objectives of the Policy Research Group are to:

  • undertake effective policy-oriented research supported by strong analytical and empirical formulations;
  • facilitate policy formulation as well as review the existing policies from an academic and substantive perspective.

 

The policy research studies which have been successfully completed under Phase I of the PRG programme will be published in the Policy Research Series.

 

The Policy Research Series is a landmark publication of the FCS, Grenada for the future.

 

This publication is targeted at a high-level readership audience and supported by an Editorial and Advisory Council of world-class researchers and specialists.
