Policy is a “wicked problem” with too many stakeholders involved, many stakeholders have different interests, cannot be exhaustively formulated, many explanations for the same problem, every problem is a symptom of another problem, every problem is unique, and no true or false. Thus, there is increasing need of capacity building for policy makers and local leaders in Indonesia.

In regional competitiveness manner, regions compete for better productivity using their resources (people, natural, capital). Local leaders play important role in designing sound policies to increase the regional competitiveness. Therefore, Center for Policy and Public Management provides sound research and empirical evidence in explaining policy and public management process in Indonesia.
