The Institute of Economic Affairs (IEA Kenya) is again among top Think Tanks in Kenya and Sub Saharan Africa, according to the 2017 Global Index Report. The organisation was placed at position 3 in Kenya and 24 in Sub-Saharan Africa. IEA was listed among the top Think Tanks with the most significant impact on Public Policy. This programme involves 6,500 think tanks and other civil society actors worldwide in various categories, and it is conducted by The Think Tanks and Civil Societies Program (TTCSP).

The Think Tanks and Civil Societies Program conducts research on the role policy institutes play in governments and in civil societies around the world. Often referred to as the "Think Tanks'," TTCSP examines the evolving role and character of public policy research organisations. "Over the last 26 years, the TTCSP has developed and led a series of global initiatives that have helped bridge the gap between knowledge and policy in critical policy areas such as international economics, international peace and security, globalisation and governance, environmental issues, information and society, poverty alleviation, and healthcare and global health.

Indeed, we are very excited about the results, and let us continue with the good work and aim to be the best – at least top 10 in Africa, Said Kwame Owino, Chief Executive, IEA - Kenya.
