The Blavatnik School of Government

The Blavatnik School of Government, University of Oxford, is the host organisation for the What Works Hub for Global Education and is where the central Hub team is based.

Founded in 2010, The Blavatnik School of Government is one of the University of Oxford’s newest and most vibrant departments.

The School’s vision is of a world better led, a world better served and a world better governed. It is a global school committed to improving the quality of government and public policymaking worldwide, through three routes:

  • Teaching current and future leaders: their education combines deep expertise with practical skills, equipping individuals to tackle this century’s most pressing policy challenges.
  • Research with impact: their independent, evidence-based research addresses the most pressing policy needs, from improving education to reducing corruption.
  • Engagement with governments and practitioners: they use our convening power to bring people together across disciplines and sectors to share knowledge, exchange ideas and create solutions.
