Research and policy

Using primary, secondary and desk-based approaches, as appropriate to the research questions and needs of the client.

Our services include:

We aim to work with clients who have a research and evidence culture, or where there is an interest in building one. We see the research process as collaborative, and are committed to ensuring that we embed processes and skills within the organisations we work with. We work with the public, private and voluntary sectors, including universities, thinktanks, unions, national and international NGOs, companies and social enterprises. 

“I really enjoyed working with Just Economics. They were responsive to our needs, flexible and presented complex ideas in an interesting way. I look forward to working with them again in the future.”


“Microsoft Philanthropies Asia commissioned Just Economics to understand the value created by our technology donations to the nonprofit sector across the region. In addition to articulating a complicated theory of change and estimating social value generated by technology, the exercise allowed us to truly understand the sector in different markets and adjust our strategy accordingly. It was such a pleasure working with the Just Economics team that we referred them to another group within Microsoft Philanthropies and they are now working on evaluating another program at a global level. We look forward to partnering with them again.”
