Moroccan Institute for Policy Analysis
The Moroccan Institute for Policy Analysis is a non-profit independent research institution based in Rabat, Morocco. Founded by a group of transdisciplinary researchers, MIPA’s mission is to produce systematic and in-depth analysis of relevant policy issues that lead to new and innovative ideas for solving some of the most pressing issues relating to democracy.
WHAT WE DO
MIPA’s main activity is to produce systematic, in-depth, accurate and objective analysis of policy relevant issues. Findings and analyses are published by the institute in the form of policy briefs, research articles and thematic reports.
Rabat Policy Forum
Each year, MIPA organizes an annual policy forum bringing together researchers, policy makers and government officials to discuss, debate, and reflect on a specific policy theme. In January 2019, MIPA organizes the first edition of the Rabat Policy Forum themed “The Quality of Political and Economic Institutions in Morocco”.
Trainings and Workshops
