About Interias

The International Institute for the Advanced Study of Cultures, Institutions and Economic Enterprise (IIAS) has been established in Accra, Ghana,to pursue multi-disciplinary research into African cultures, institutions (legal, social, cultural, political, economic, health), enterprise and everyday life as a platform for institutional reform and the creation of more supple structures to meet new challenges. Its quest is to develop African solutions to African problems, informed by current international scholarship, best policy practices, and emerging out of dialogue between academic researchers, policy makers, and government officials

The Institute believes the desirable goals of democracy and economic development can be pursued within the framework of indigenous cultures, as has been demonstrated by Japan and the Asian Tigers.
