The Partnership for African Social and Governance Research (PASGR) is an independent, non-partisan pan-African not-for-profit organisation established in 2011 and located in Nairobi, Kenya.  Currently engaged in more than 12 African countries, PASGR works to enhance research excellence in governance and public policy that contributes to the overall wellbeing of women and men.

In partnership with individual academics and researchers, higher education institutions, research think tanks, civil society organisations, business and policy communities both in the region and internationally, PASGR supports the production and dissemination of policy relevant research; designs and delivers suites of short professional development courses for researchers and policy actors; and facilitates the development of collaborative higher education programmes.

Our vision is ‘a vibrant African social science community addressing the continent’s public policy issues’.

PASGR’s three core programmes bring together the right mix of universities, research institutions, government, policy actors, researchers and academics to:

  • Establish and sustain partnerships at national/regional and international levels for advancing research, higher education and training;
  • Facilitate the creation of policy and research communities;
  • Enhance the institutionalisation of a research culture in Africa’s universities and research organisations; and,
  • Coordinate a collaborative Master of Research and Public Policy with universities in Africa

PASGR is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organisation.

PASGR’s Vision

A vibrant African social science community addressing the continent’s public policy issues.
