The mission of the Uganda Research Institute is to provide sound policy-oriented research that informs and guides policy makers and the public about Uganda’s current development challenges. The vision of the URI is to become a premier institution that analyzes and synthesizes public policy research for use by policy makers and to inform the general public.
“[In Uganda] Policy makers often blame researchers for providing information at the wrong time (and) in formats that are not easily understood to policy makers. Researchers blame policy makers for making decisions that are not based on evidence(research).”
