Welcome To IRD

Welcome to the Institute for Research & Development (IRD), and thank you for taking time to visit our website.

Since its inception in 2003, IRD has established itself as one of the leading nonpartisan, nonprofit and independent think tanks in the country that serves government, non-government, international and multilateral organizations. We do research in critical policy areas such as peace and security, globalization governance, domestic economics, poverty alleviation, gender promotion and transnational issues.

IRD aims to strengthen the scope of its research work and scholarship by bringing together policy planners, scholars, as well as young future researchers (students) on selected public policy issues in order to make an impact in the policy mapping and implementation and evaluation of public policy, both domestic and international.

Hopefully, this website will provide you with information on our research programs, upcoming and past events, the institute’s publications, newsletter, Policy Reports, our policy research recommendations, and research papers, in written text and multimedia formats. We welcome your interest and participation in the work of the institute.
