Research Center, National Institute of DevelopmentAdministration, was set up in 1966 at the same time as the establishment of National Institute of Development Administration. Researchcenter is a central unit of NIDA. Its role and mission consist in promoting and supporting NIDA’s research, academic services, research funding services, with the Research Center director being a member and secretary to NIDA’s Research Fund, and dissemination of NIDA’s research in various forms such as through national and international academic conferences.
In 2012, NIDA formulated the policy for Research Center to conduct pro-active research to meet the demand of the society and the country. Therefore, it deemed appropriate to modify the role, mission, and structure of Research Center so as to have more clarity and to reflect specialization, by focusing on the research on various aspects that solve the country’s problems. A framework was set up to monitor the quality of research, evaluate the quality of research published in national and international journals, in order to drive NIDA toward an academic institute at the international level and to respond to NIDA’s long-term development strategies (2008-2013) under sub-strategy 6: maintain academic excellence in research programs andacademic services that are outstanding and reflect the needs of society. Therefore, Research Center undertook the management restructuring in 2012 by replacing Academic Department with Research Center, and with 12 research centers under it.
Research Center for Crimes and Drugs is one of the 12 research centers established in 2012 under NIDA’s research strategy to develop and foster knowledge on the problems of crimes and drugs, in order to promote knowledge in managing and driving NIDA toward a research university at the international level.
