MSI has provided a range of services including stability assessments, communications analysis and survey research to multinational clients from the development sector.
Multi-Country Southeast Asian Stability Assessment
Phnom Penh and Kampong Thom, Cambodia
The client sought to conduct a baseline assessment of stability conditions in multiple countries across Southeast Asia. The assessment required the collection and analysis of both qualitative and quantitative data in parallel from more than 20 locations on a range of economic, development and social factors.
A team of MSI senior analysts with expertise in the region developed a framework of indicators that would be collected during the primary research phase. MSI then assembled a multinational team of more than 100 local researchers from each of the locations to be surveyed to perform the data collection. Once the data was collected, MSI analyst presented the client with a framework that would be updated at quarterly intervals to assess stability trends in the region.
Previous client attempts are developing a cross-national assessment framework had met with limited success due to the client's inability to specify the indicators most relevant for tracking stability. The framework developed by experienced MSI analysts and populations by indigenous research teams provided the client with the visibility it needed in order to forecast development trends for the region.
