The Oslo Governance Centre (OGC) is one of six UNDP Global Policy Centres, established in 2002 and working since May 2015 with a renewed mandate.  It is part of the UNDP Governance and Peacebuilding Cluster in the Bureau for Policy and Programme Support (BPPS) working closely with  its New York based Headquarters and other relevant UN and UNDP units strengthening the overall analytical and learning ability in the area of Governance and Peacebuilding.

The OGC draws on UNDP’s expertise in human development, democratic governance and conflict prevention to support policy development and applied research with an overarching focus on democratic governance and peacebuilding in crisis, conflict and transitional contexts.

The Centre greatly values its partnership with its host, Norway, and has been set up with shared resources and under shared governance arrangements.
