The South African Institute of International Affairs

The South African Institute of International Affairs (SAIIA) is South Africa’s premier research institute on international issues. As an independent, non-government think tank, they have a long history of providing thought leadership in Africa.

Their work spans social development, foreign policy, governance, the environment, and economic policy, linking local experiences with global debates. This body of African-generated knowledge provides local and regional decision-makers with independent, evidence-based options for Africa’s future development. 

All their findings are made available freely in the form of publications, policy briefs, videos, articles, workshops and conferences. They provide an open platform for the public to engage with these issues, and facilitate discussions between a wide variety of stakeholders.
