The The Aga Khan University East AFrica Institute's mission is to provide a coherent and impartial evidence-based platform for policy formulation, decision-making and action to address the challenges and harness the opportunities for adaptive and sustainable social and economic development while ensuring a resilient environmental resource base.
The EAI promotes a culture of evidence-based approaches to design and formulation of policy. It provides a platform for interdisciplinary and integrated policy-oriented research that is both relevant to AKU academic programmes and the East African Community
We provide our students with an opportunity to move ahead in their careers, no matter where they begin. Almost 30 per cent of our worldwide student body is enrolled in programmes in East Africa, and the number is growing.
With over 30 years of experience providing international quality education, we offer students a practical, intimate learning experience. We inspire our students to become resilient leaders and forces for positive change in their communities.
