About us


Our Story

We have carved a niche in Ghana’s policy environment for putting out objective, independent analysis and critique on many issues, using tried and tested techniques that apply across different disciplines. Through effective communication skills and the ability to work with public-spirited media and civil society, we are shaping national, regional and global agenda in order to close the “citizen participation gap” in the governance process.

IMANI has over 50 media allies in Africa. Like other public policy think tanks, we produce high-quality, relevant research. We distinguish ourselves when it comes to media impact, and especially when it comes to our capacity to reach out to ordinary citizens through a wide variety of mass-circulation newspapers, the internet, and appearances on popular television and radio shows. We can say that “pound for pound,” we have by far the highest media profile of any think tank in West Africa.
