North-South Institute

Founded in 1976, The North-South Institute (NSI) is a policy research institution specializing in international development. The objectives of the institute are as follows:

1) To promote a greater understanding of the problems and opportunities in the field of international development through high quality and policy-relevant research;

2) To encourage collaborative research for development that will promote international discussion, policy and action;

3) To provide a non-governmental space where views on international development can be exchanged;

4) And to offer an independent and nonpartisan voice that can direct attention to important current and expected issues in international development.

For nearly four decades, NSI has endeavored to fulfill these objectives and to pursue the broad goal of reducing global poverty and inequality through effective international development.
