EAPRI opens new office in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia

The East African Policy Research Institute (EAPRI) is opening its first field office in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. This is an effort to expand EAPRI’s presence in East Africa and to support the transitional process in Ethiopia, said Dr Andarge Taye, the Deputy Director of the Institute. The current reform and transition in Ethiopia is a unique opportunity that needs to be exploited, otherwise the institute is also planning to expand its presence to other East African countries including Eritrea, Kenya, Uganda and Rwanda, added the Deputy Director.

The new office in Addis Ababa is expected to join policy scholars who work to provide critical information that guides policy formulation, revision and implementations, design models and frameworks for the institutional reform, inclusive dialogue, national healing and reconciliation in the country. EAPRI is also planning to host policy students and interns to help them broaden their education, research and experiences.
