Enugu, Nigeria

African Heritage Institution (AfriHeritage) formerly African Institute for Applied Economics (AIAE) is a not-for-profit, non-partisan and an independent policy think tank incorporated by guarantee in Nigeria in December 2000. The need to expand its scope led to a name change in 2013. The Institution is devoted to governance and socio-economic policy researches, policy advocacy, training and networking. The institution envisions a renascent Africa that is democratic, prosperous and a major play in the global economy; and its mission is to provide intellectual leadership in helping Nigeria and Africa think meaningfully through the emerging economic renaissance.
