Our initiatives

The Mo Ibrahim Foundation focusses on defining, assessing and ultimately enhancing governance and leadership in Africa through four key initiatives.

Ibrahim Index of African Governance (IIAG)

The Ibrahim Index of African Governance provides a statistical assessment of governance performance in every African country.

Ibrahim Governance Weekend (IGW)

The IGW is the flagship event of the Mo Ibrahim Foundation, held every year in a different African country. It includes the Now Generation and Ibrahim Forums, as well as a number of Africa-focussed parallel events from selected organisations.

Ibrahim Prize for Achievement in African Leadership

The Ibrahim Prize celebrates excellence in African leadership. It is awarded to a former Executive Head of State or Government by an independent Prize Committee.

Ibrahim Leadership Fellowships

The Ibrahim Leadership Fellowships form a selective programme designed to mentor future African leaders.
