Afrobarometer: What do we know of African countries based on survey data?


What are Africans thinking? Afrobarometer has the answers.

Afrobarometer is a pan-African research institution formed in 1999 conducting public attitude surveys in over 30 African countries. It collects survey data on a regular basis on themes such as democracy, governance, the economy and society. So far, Afrobarometer has released seven rounds of surveys, and has established itself as the world’s leading source of data on African opinions. This year, it is celebrating its 20th anniversary.

The Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland has the honor to welcome to Finland distinguished experts from the Afrobarometer team from Ghana, Malawi, and South Africa. They will present the work of Afrobarometer, and there will be room for discussion based on questions from the audience.
