The Institute for Public Policy Research (IPPR) was officially launched in April 2001 as a not-for-profit organisation with a mission to deliver independent, analytical, critical yet constructive research into social, political and economic issues that affect development in Namibia. The IPPR was established in the belief that free and critical debate informed by quality research promotes development.

The IPPR is independent of government, political parties, commercial interests, trade unions and other interest groups. The Institute is governed by a Board of Directors drawn from different areas of Namibian society.

The work of IPPR is mainly divided into three core programmes: Democracy and Governance Research Programme, Public Opinion Programme and Public Policy Analysis Programme.
