New South Institute

The New South Institute (NSI) is devoted to strengthening delicate democracies by building effective and accountable institutions.
Our research approach is both in-depth and actionable. We study the underpinnings of democracies to identify elements that bolster or weaken their foundation. Central to our belief is that the backbone of enduring governance rests on the robustness of its institutions. To achieve our mission, the NSI team produces evidence-based policy recommendations tailored to drive real-world transformations.
Our commitment extends beyond research. We actively engage with governments, civil societies, and other stakeholders, ensuring our insights are integrated into policy and decision-making frameworks. As the global landscape shifts, the importance of fostering transparent and accountable governance grows. NSI stands as a dedicated actor in this narrative, striving to fortify the very essence of democracy for a secure and prosperous future.
