CIPE’s Global and Knowledge Management programs are designed to develop cross-cutting themes and projects that provide new insights, capture lessons learned from CIPE’s work, share information across regional departments and among CIPE partners, and develop new areas of expertise to shape worldwide debates on the interdependence of democracy and market reform. Global and Knowledge Management programs serve as a crucial resource for CIPE partners and staff while gathering and disseminating valuable institutional knowledge. Global programs and resources bolster CIPE’s overall activities while expanding international outreach and understanding on reform issues. These programs focus on a variety of areas, including anti-corruption, corporate governance, business association development, access to information, women’s empowerment, entrepreneurship, and youth engagement.
