Ifri has developed 15 research and debate units on various issues either regional or transversal. In 2008, many ambitious programmes have been launched thanks to the support of our partners; namely the programmes related to Sub-saharian Africa; China; Contemporary Turkey; Relations between EU, Africa and North Africa; India; Health and Environment. We thank you for trusting us.
The support for a research unit is materialized by a grant agreement which bounds Ifri to the donor (corporate body, organism, foundation). This contractual link runs for several years (often 3 to 4 years) and provides for an annual payment at the anniversary date of the agreement or after the handover of a report or a study.
The amount of the donation depends on how important the research programme is. The donation contributes to:
› the strengthening of the research teams;
› the increase in number of the field missions;
› the invitation of experts to seminars organized by the research programme;
› the order of policy papers with outside experts intended to help to a better understanding of the issues addressed by the research programme;
› the translation into English if possible of all policy papers in order to secure a wider circulation and ensure a better impact on the political and economical decision makers.
