The role of Think-Tanks  in society  is  to   engage  in  the  battle  of  ideas  by  providing  research-based   advocacy  and  evidence-based  commentary  on  pertinent   public  affairs. Think Tanks play a vital role in the development of the economy at both local and national levels.  The role further extends to compliment Government in making informed policy decisions through public policy research and analysis while at the same time aid the public to understand government policy decisions. In view of the increasing influence of Think-Tanks worldwide, there is need for our networks to be established among several like-minded institutions to promote a shared approach to development.
