Thematic Research Groups

The Thematic Research Groups (TRGs) are subsets of the PEP researchers working on an area of research associated with a specific methodology or addressing a major development theme. PEP currently has four TRGs, associated with PEP’s four main methodologies (the PEP Toolbox). 

Members of the TRGs are international experts specialized in their theme or methodology. They are actively engaged in delivering PEP activities within their area of research. Activities include defining priority research questions, developing new research projects, evaluating research proposals, and ensuring the scientific quality of PEP research publications.
