Afrobarometer is a pan-African, non-partisan research network that conducts public attitude surveys on democracy, governance, economic conditions, and related issues in more than 35 countries in Africa. Through our findings, ordinary citizens can have a voice in policy-making processes that affect their lives.
It is the world’s leading research project on issues that affect ordinary African men and women. It collects and publishes high-quality, reliable statistical data on Africa which is freely available to the public.
It is carried out through a partnership of the Ghana Center for Democratic Development (CDD Ghana), Institute for Justice and Reconciliation (IJR) in South Africa, Institute for Empirical Research in Political Economy (IREEP) of the African School of Economics at Abomey Calavi in Benin, Institute for Development Studies (IDS) at the University of Nairobi, the Institute for Democracy, Citizenship and Public Policy in Africa at the University of Cape Town and the Department of Political Science at Michigan State University.
