Institute of Public Affairs (IPA) is a leading Polish think tank and an independent centre for
policy research and analysis, established in 1995. Their mission is to contribute to informed public debate on key Polish, European and global policy issues. Our main areas of study include European policy, social policy, civil society, migration and development policy as well as law and democratic institutions.
The IPA has a team of in-house researchers/policy analysts and an extensive network of associate experts from academia and other paths of life. They publish the results of their projects in research reports, policy papers and books, which are broadly disseminated among members of parliament, government officials and civil servants, academics, journalists and civil society activists. Every year the iPA hosts dozens of conferences, seminars, round tables, workshops and other events with the participation of key policy and opinion makers. Their experts regularly comment on current policy issues in printed and electronic media.
The iPA works with key international institutions such as European Commission and Parliament as well as OSCE, Council of Europe and Community of Democracies. They are active as members of many international networks and associations, including Policy Association for an Open Society PASOS and European Partnership for Democracy.
The Institute carries out its activities via five major programmes: European Programme,
Social Policy Programme, Civil Society Programme, Migration Policy
Programme and Law and Democratic Institutions Programme.
