Longstanding Experience and Commendable Track Record Since 1989

IAG's Work is set in the Horn of Africa, that part of Northeastern Africa that juts into the Indian Ocean, giving the region its distinctive shape. The Horn comprises a population of well over 100 million people spread across the Sudan, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Somalia and Djibouti. The five countries are closely interwined, sharing strong cultural and historical links.

IAG’s Organisational Profile

InterAfrica Group (IAG) is an independent non-profit organization established in 1989 with a mission of supporting sustainable development, strengthening democratic institutions and promoting peace and security in the Horn of Africa. Over the last 20 years IAG has cultivated a reputable niche in research and public dialogue on vital development, governance and peace building policy issues both in the context of Ethiopia and regionally. More importantly, and particularly, since 2004, it has played a significant role in peace building initiatives in partnership with IGAD’s Early Warning and Response Mechanism (CEWARN).

From its inception IAG has primarily implemented a highly visible and effective undertakings (i.e. in research, public dialog, networking, coordination and peace) implemented at elevated political and intellectual levels alongside programs targeting local communities. This has enabled the organization to strategically position itself at national and regional levels, where vital political and socio-economic issues are articulated and alternative policy recommendations developed.


IAG’s vision is a Horn of Africa where human rights are respected, democratic culture flourishes and economic development and peace are achievable.


IAG's mission in the Horn is promoting peace, human rights, democratic culture, and sustaniable development. IAG covers critical socio-economic issues concerning the countries of the Horn, namely Ethiopia, Eritrea, Sudan, Somali, Kenya, Uganda and Djibouti, while also dealing with issues that have wider relevance to the continent.

IAG’s programs combine networking, advocacy, dialogue and research on policy issues. We strive to achieve these goals through the following major activities in collaboration with governments, inter- governmental organizations, communities and CSOs:

  • Organizing conferences and forums for informative exchange of views and debate on social, political and economic issues concerning the Horn of Africa.
  • Undertaking research on critical socio-economic and political issues (such as governance, conflict mitigation and resolution, as well as, countering violent extremism - CVE) in the sub-region.
  • Publishing and disseminating information on vital socio-economic and political intiatives to policy makers and citizens at large.
  • Capacity building of cross border local peace structures and promoting peacefull co-existance betwen communities.
