STATEMENT OF IMANI’S INDEPENDENCE AND GUIDING PRINCIPLES

 

  • IMANI’s work is motivated and guided by principles. We hold that the institutions of the free society are the best way to empower individuals, to promote respect for people and property, and thereby to eliminate poverty, improve human health and protect the environment.
  • IMANI implements a research and advocacy agenda that encompasses not one or a few, but many public policy issues.
  • IMANI’s work stands on its own merit, through the scholarly integrity of our authors, rigorous documentation of findings, and a peer review process appropriate to ensure quality.
  • IMANI develops its research and advocacy agenda independently, through internal research and brainstorming.
