Papua New Guinea Institute of National Affairs ‒ INA

Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea

PNG Institute of National Affairs is a privately funded, non-profit policy research institute, or "think tank". About 80 companies contributed to its core running and management costs, with some project support from public institutions and foundations. PNG Institute of National Affairs was founded in 1976 by concerned individuals from both the government and private sector to promote dialogue between the private sector and government and to offer alternative advice to the public service on economic and social policy. The PNG Institute of National Affairs's primary role is to carry out public policy-related research and disseminate the results as widely as possible to the community, government departments, statutory institutions, learning institutions and politicians. Research is carried out by world-class academics, from some of the world's leading universities and other institutions, and has a conscious policy of including PNG academics in its research, where that is possible.The research is generally sponsored by PNG and international bodies. The research is published and made available to the public. The INA also administers the Consultative, Implementation and Monitoring Council (CIMC) as a mechanism for public, private sector and civil society dialogue on key issues of public interest related to social, economic and wider development issues in PNG (including running the Family and Sexual Violence Action Committee, FSVAC)
