About Us

The East African Policy Research Institute (EAPRI) is an independent, nonprofit and nonpartisan policy think tank that aims to bridge the gaps between research, policy and practice in the East African region. 

At EAPRI, we analyze, synthesize, and translate evidence that inform policy formulation, encourage policy dialogue to create consensus on pressing policy matters and strengthen capacity and political commitment to inform resource allocation, program design and implementation.

Our main goal is to empower citizens, to create change agents and to facilitate democratic transition, peace and development in the region. To this end, we bring together researchers from across disciplines to create and disseminate evidence-informed and policy-relevant knowledge that speaks to policy agendas, amplifies policy impact, and grows partnerships among national, regional and international communities.
