Our work

Policy design and advocacy

Strengthening society

We design and advocate for policies that address inequality and promote prosperity

We advocate for the economic empowerment of Saudi citizens. Using an evidence-led approach, we design policy solutions that contribute to building an effective social protection system, and bring a fresh perspective to complex social challenges.

We invest our efforts in policy topics that align with Saudi Arabia’s national priorities, and support global efforts to tackle poverty and inequality. These include financial inclusion, sustainability, civic engagement, social protection, and more.

We also invest in alliances with government decision-makers, civil society leaders and the private sector, finding innovative ways to inform, engage and mobilise stakeholders. Through workshops, panel discussions and closed-door meetings, we seek to help shape public agendas and priorities, and ensure the rights of all Saudi citizens are represented.

Our contribution

Evidence-led research

Our strategic advocacy has influenced the adoption of more than 10 national policies and laws, including Saudi Arabia’s first anti-domestic violence law, child protection legislation, and policies governing social spending, and the activities of the nonprofit sector.

We are also an active voice in development discourse, and a champion of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Through our engagement with the World Economic Forum, the United Nations and both the G20 and C20, we contribute to developing a more equitable global community.
