Third World Network-Africa focuses on strategic development issues facing Africa in the age of globalization, especially from the perspectives of the vulnerable and marginalized. It also facilitates the organization and expression of African civil society at the regionally, continentally and globally, collaborating with community-based organizations, trade unions, academics and policy-makers throughout the continent.

Based in Ghana, with a pan-African reach, TWN-Africa carries out research and develops evidence-based policies to advocate for equitable economic policies and improved economic governance with policy-makers across Africa.

Through its work in policy research, training, public communications and dialogue with civil society organizations, governments and international institutions, TWN-Africa has become a leading voice on issues related to:
• trade, investment and finance;
• regional economic integration;
• mining and the environment;
• gender and economic policy; and
• climate change

Third World Network – Africa was created in 1994 by a dedicated group of activist African intellectuals. Inter Pares is honoured to have had the privilege of providing seed funding for their efforts, and to have continued to collaborate with them throughout the decades since.
