Think tank

IEA was established as a politically nonpartisan body which functions as a center for policy analysis, a forum for the exchange of ideas, and a resource for public education. IEA translates academic research into information and recommendations for policymakers, organizing policy forums on a variety of issues, and releases regular publications. IEA's main objectives are to promote private-sector-led economic development and assist in the process of democratic consolidation in Ghana and throughout Africa. A major part of IEA's activities has been designed to promote the establishment of an open society, the achievement of good governance, and the entrenchment of multiparty democracy. IEA organizes conferences, seminars, workshops, and so on, affording opportunities for opinion leaders and other stakeholders to critically examine policy issues and exchange ideas. IEA runs a number of programs aimed at enhancing the technical capacities of the Government of Ghana and collaborates with several international development agencies, receiving sponsorship from some of these sources as well as from the sale of its services and publications.
