We bring an informed voice to public debate and promote interaction between key players in the public and private sectors and academics from Argentina and around the world.
Fundar seeks to influence the running of public affairs by putting forward ideas that are firmly grounded in research and evidence, drawing on both local and international experiences. We also continually improve our lines of action by engaging in close readings of the social, political, and economic context.
In recent decades, Argentina has swung back and forth between the two ends of the political spectrum. This constant change has prevented policymakers from thinking about the long term and has shaken our convictions as a society.
Fundar was created with the intention of rekindling at least one of these beliefs: that Argentina’s rich human talent can create the competitive advantages we need to achieve long-term sustainable development. What the country currently lacks are opportunities for this talent to grow so that we can build the Argentina of the future.
Although the realities of life here often cause people to engage in magical thinking or give up hope entirely, we’re daring to be rational. We believe that a different future is possible and we’re working to make it happen.
Argentina isn’t doomed to failure, but it isn’t a guaranteed success story either. The country’s fate will be whatever its people make it. We started Fundar to help shape that destiny.
We use quantitative methods to evaluate public policies, but also seek to promote and facilitate their use in their design, planning and management. Quantitative models can be used to evaluate and carry out diagnostics, but also to predict and simulate.
