Established in 2007, the Ibrahim Index of African Governance (IIAG) assesses governance performance in Africa. Consisting of 94 indicators calculated using data from 32 independent sources, the annual IIAG is the most comprehensive collection of data on African governance.

The IIAG aims to provide:

  • A framework for stakeholders to assess the delivery of public goods and services, and policy outcomes, in every African country.
  • A tool with which to govern, highlighting continental, regional, national, and thematic governance results.

“We are looking not just for a job done… we are looking for people changing the course of the country.”

—Mo Ibrahim, founder of the Ibrahim Index of African Governance
