The LMRC, as a regional Think Tank and technical organ of the ICGLR, undertakes and promotes multi-disciplinary and operational research and analysis on governance processes, peace and state building, conflict prevention and resolution at the Local, National and Regional levels with the purpose of contributing to evidence based policy making processes. Research findings focus generally on best practices, analysis of challenges and policy options to address them. They are published and disseminated among key stakeholders and decision makers in the ICGLR organs, Member States and the Region as a whole.
