Case Collection


The Public Policy Case Collection is a free educational resource designed for the use and training of public policy and development students and practitioners around the world. This collection presents audiovisual cases filmed on location in the Americas, Africa, and Asia, profiling innovative programs and initiatives, and exploring some of the world’s most pressing public policy and development issues. Full access to this password-protected collection is available via collection membership.

Cases are available for inclusion in a wide variety of online platforms, and educators have access to lesson plans and epilogues. For CSO/NGO’s and local development groups who would like to use these cases for custom trainings and workshops, please see our NGO Support page. Please see below for other resources related to case use and creation, including the 2023 MOOC Digital Case Method

The problems facing the world today are incredibly similar across geographies – very often a solution developed in Mumbai can solve problems in London or Chicago.
