CIPPEC is an independent non-profit organization that creates awareness and offers recommendations for the construction of improved public policies.
Their mission is to propose policies for fair development and the strengthening of Argentine democracy, which anticipate future issues through applied research, open dialogues, and accompaniment to public governance. They work for a free, equitable, and diverse society, and for a democratic, fair, and efficient State that promotes sustainable development.
What do they do?
- Identify needs for the implementation of public policies.
- Contribute to the design and implementation of public policies in different areas of government.
- Evaluate the impact of public policies and transfer tools for monitoring and evaluation.
- Share information in a clear, simple manner to a wide audience.
Area of Social Protection
CIPPEC works to consolidate, focusing on rights, a system of integral, federal protection that promotes a country with improved wellbeing and social development (Social Protection Program) and to strengthen the State in the design and implementation of policies that contribute to advancement towards greater educational justice in Argentina (Education Program).
Area of Economic Development
They motivate reforms that stimulate transparency, equity, and efficiency in the use of public funds, in a context of fiscal solvency and democratization of budgetary decisions (Economic Development Program). Additionally, they seek to influence integral development of cities in the region and endow their leaders with tools to promote more equitable, resilient, and intelligent cities to improve the quality of life for their populations (City Program).
Area of State and Government
They promote: 1) Reforms in the management of the State that help to strengthen and democratize political decisions (Political Institutions Program); 2) Reforms linked to the quality of State management, envisioning the governmental administration as a space for interaction between the political system, bureaucracy, and citizens (Public Management Program); and 3) The inclusion of knowledge in the political process to generate more democratic, inclusive, effective, and transparent policies (Evaluation and Monitoring Program).
#META: Strategic Goals for Transforming Argentina (Metas Estratégicas para Transformar Argentina)
The project seeks to promote dialogue between the main actors in the Argentine political environment, with the objective of coming to consensuses to achieve a more developed, equitable country, with equal opportunities and solid, efficient public institutions.
Through an evidence-based discussion, CIPPEC articulates spaces for dialogue so that presidential candidates, major political leaders, and those responsible for sector leadership may reach consensus and assume political commitments on the solutions to the structural problems that Argentina will face in the next four years. For this, the project will not only seek to install strategic issues on the public agenda, but it will also work to form agreements that allow the monitoring of compliance with any commitments acquired in the future.

T20 Argentina 2018
In 2018, CIPPEC co-chaired Think 20 (T20), the network of think tanks and research centers whose main objective is to develop and recommend concrete and feasible public policies, in addition to evaluating the operation of the G20 plans and monitoring their implementation. T20 brings together experts from the most recognized think tanks in the international arena and presents public policy recommendations to G20 member countries in different fields. During the Argentine presidency, more than 300 think tanks and universities from 56 countries actively participated in the T20 process and produced 83 public policy documents.
Once the Argentine Presidency of T20 is finished, CIPPEC will continue its participation in the network as part of the Troika and with many of its experts in charge of the different Working Groups, including the future of work, climate change, infrastructure in the digital era, gender economic equity, and the future of politics.
