IPIS vzw is an independent research institute which focuses on Sub-Saharan Africa. Our studies concern three core themes: arms trade, exploitation of natural resources and corporate social responsibility.
Although as an NGO we often do research projects for campaigning organisations, we do not engage in campaigning and lobbying activities ourselves, this to ensure the unbiased nature of our reporting.
My role is with the CSR team, researching matters related to corporate responsibility and accountability in the region.
