The Oslo Governance Centre (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. In line with the new UNDP Strategic Plan (2018 – 2021) and Agenda 2030, OGC has anchored its governance and peacebuilding work towards supporting the implementation of Sustainable Development Goal 16 (SDG 16).
The OGC’s main areas of work are:
- Supporting SDG 16 implementation and measuring governance for development
- Preventing violent extremism
- Social contract research
- Governance challenges in countries in transition
