What We Do


Research is at the core of this institution. We ensure that high quality research is carried out by our staff and collaborators. We provide researchers with the resources and services they require to carry out rigorous, impactful research. We adopt a multidisciplinary approach in our research. Each researcher brings his or her disciplinary rigor to our research laboratories.

Capacity Building

The institute works with its partners to build the capacity of local scholars to carry out ethical, rigorous research whose results are actionable and publishable in the best journals. We do this through regular seminars, workshops, conferences and mentorship. Our partners include African academics in the diaspora.
