Our research

The Foundation’s research team is primarily engaged with producing two major annual publications, the Ibrahim Index of African Governance (IIAG), and a research report to accompany the Forum at the Foundation’s annual Governance Weekend, which is focussed on a different topic every year. Previous topics include Africa’s urbanisation, youth and agriculture.

Additional MIF research

The Foundation also produces research outside of these major products on issues surrounding the focus of the Foundation’s work, including a series of collaborative research papers, intended to provide in-depth analysis and insights on key issues relevant to governance and leadership in Africa, in addition to our main research outputs.
