PPAD considers policy outreach as one of its primary goals. As a result, it initiated the publication of Policy Briefs, the first of their kind after the establishment of the GAPP School in 2009. They address current issues pertaining to public policy, public administration, global affairs/development in Egypt and the MENA region, as well as in policy areas of interest to the community of PPAD/GAPP faculty and researchers. Currently, policy briefs are published by the GAPP School.

In addition, PPAD has also launched the publication of the Working Paper Series. The main purpose of this series is to provide a platform to disseminate work in progress by GAPP academics and researchers, to be made accessible to the wider informed community, and to engage a critical analysis of the juncture of theory and practice.
