A policy paper research is a type of research conducted to solve a practical organizational problem. It guides authorities and decision-makers in making smarter decisions. There are various methods of preparing a policy paper, with the authors of the present paper having used a SWOT analysis, which stands for Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats. Upon reading policy papers based on a SWOT analysis, authorities will have a detailed overview of a practical problem. This will improve the effectiveness of using organizational resources, thereby reducing the rate of possible errors. The Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG), as a government structure, needs to use this scientific approach to solve its problems practically. Most of the studies conducted by KRG universities have not addressed possible practical proposals, yet they have focused mainly on the theoretical aspects of problems. Against this background, this research tries to focus on introducing a policy paper based on a SWOT analysis for KRG researchers. The principal idea in preparing a policy paper is to focus on a practical problem and propose the best solution to it. Developing a policy paper is an academic task, so it needs to be prepared using a scientific methodology. It is expected that upon an increase in the number of policy paper research at KRG universities and associated research centers, the decision-making process will be easier, more intelligent, and more efficient. In that event, the KRG will be developed more rapidly as a government structure.
