About Us

The Institute of Policy Analysis and Research (IPAR) is an independent, indigenous and non-partisan private organisation established in 1994. It is a non-profit body mandated to conduct databased social science policy analysis and research, and training, with the aim of improving human welfare. IPAR shares its policy findings with the government of Kenya, its development partners, private sector, and civil society.

The Institute of Policy Analysis and Research (IPAR) seeks to become a national centre of excellence offering constructive policy ideas to the government of Kenya and its development partners in order to enhance human welfare.

Its mission is to strengthen the national capacity to develop, implement and evaluate public policy by undertaking independent policy analysis and research, and sharing the results with the government of Kenya, its development partners, private sector, and civil society.

 IPAR relies on rigorous policy analysis and research as the most credible basis for influencing policies. The Institute also seeks to serve as a resource centre by offering technical, research and informational support for national development. To this end, it provides objective databased findings and articulates them at national and other fora for the benefit of interested parties including, government, NGOs, the private sector, and the donor community.
