The Sochin Research Institute (SRI) is an independent think tank and programme implementer that deploys advanced social science techniques to interrogate perceptions, attitudes and values in a bid to improve public policy in East Africa. SRI works at the nexus between political science, technology and society, and was registered as a non-profit organization in Kenya. At SRI, we believe that only context-driven and evidenced-based research leads to the generation of knowledge, paradigm shifts, and the better design of policy interventions.
