The Mo Ibrahim Foundation will present the Ibrahim Index of African Governance (IIAG), looking particularly at its relevance to an academic audience. The talk will aim to address how the IIAG can be put to practical use in research, how it is used by other key stakeholders and the IIAG’s place within the ‘data revolution’. It is intended for anyone with an interest in governance measurement, or governance in Africa. The presentation will be given by Salmana Ahmed and Christina Nelson, both former students of SOAS and currently Senior Programme Managers within the Research Team at the Mo Ibrahim Foundation.
