Recognising the scale and scope of research challenges facing Nigeria, the Nsibidi Institute places high value on knowledge. This priority sits at the crux of our ambition to become the primary point for reliable resources and critical thinking on issues relevant to the formation and development of contemporary Nigerian society.
Our other commitment towards developing knowledge is focused on encouraging dialogue and deliberation – a key attribute of actively engaged communities. The Institute aspires to be the place and space for the intersection of multi-disciplinary discourses; a fora for dialogue and inquiry of issues relevant to the broader Nigerian society. We hope to achieve through a series of public events and initiatives that cultivate public interest, stimulate debate and broaden readership on project, community and institutional levels.
Strategic Aims of the Institute
The Institute’s strategic aims are the five main areas in which we aim to make a real difference within the context of our work. As high-level tenets, they play a fundamental role in locating critical sites of intervention and in directing our choice of partners and involvements.
Ultimately, these five strategic aims serve as the basis for focusing our resources and energies as well as a key tool to enable us track the impact of out work.
