IGnHAs Mission

The Institute for GNH Studies shall be an independent, secular and non-partisan knowledge institution serving as a leading forum for debate and deliberations on public policies and development issues in Bhutan in order to enhance the quality of life of the Bhutanese people through its influence. It shall engage in research, policy debates and advocacies, publications, conferences, executive trainings, and seminars. Its most distinguishing feature will lie in its strong research capacity to inform policies and practices by systematically integrating research-based analyses and informed opinions with the sensitivities of individual and societal values, and its extensive network of partner-institutes within Bhutan and around the world.
