Organizational Status: Independent institute, founded in 1994.

General Description: IPAR's vision is to become a national center of excellence offering constructive policy ideas to the government of Kenya and its development partners in order to increase welfare. The mission of the institute is to strengthen the national capacity to develop, implement and evaluate public policy by undertaking independent policy analysis and research, and by sharing the results with Kenya and its development partners. IPAR also seeks to serve as a resource center by offering technical, research and informational support for national development. To these ends, it provides objective, data-based findings and articulates them at forums nationally and elsewhere for the benefit of interested parties, including the government, NGOs, the private sector and the donor community. Through its competitive internship program, the institute has become a major contributor to capacity building for young professionals seeking career development in policy research and analysis within government, private organizations and other institutions.
