The Jesse M. Robredo Institute of Governance (JRIG) is a private research and training organization based at the De La Salle University (DLSU)-Manila. DLSU-JRIG promotes integrity, innovation, and inclusiveness in governance and policy through research, training, and community engagement. It cooperates with government offices, civil society organizations, private sector entities, academic institutions, and donors in conducting programs and projects that generate data and knowledge to improve governance and policy outcomes.

Founded in 2001 as the La Salle Institute of Governance, it was renamed DLSU-Jesse M. Robredo Institute of Governance in 2021 in honor of the late Jesse M.
