About SLRC

About SLRC

SLRC was set up in 2011 with the aim of strengthening the evidence base and informing policy and practice around state-building, livelihoods and service delivery in fragile and conflict-affected situations.

Who we are

SLRC is a global research programme exploring state-building, livelihoods and service delivery in fragile and conflict-affected situations, working with partners in eight countries.

What we do

SLRC’s research focuses on three themes: state legitimacy and people’s perceptions of local governance; state capacity and effective service delivery; and livelihood trajectories and local economic activity.
