Institute of Public Affairs (IPA) is a leading Polish think tank and an independent centre for
policy research and analysis, established in 1995. Our mission is to contribute to informed public debate on key Polish, European and global policy issues. Our main areas of study include European policy, social policy, civil society and migration policy as well as law and democratic institutions.

The IPA has a team of in-house researchers/policy analysts and an extensive network of associate experts from academia and other paths of life. We publish the results of our projects in research reports, policy papers and books, which are broadly disseminated among members of parliament, government officials and civil servants, academics, journalists and civil society activists. Every year the iPA hosts dozens of conferences, seminars, round tables, workshops and other events with the participation of key policy and opinion makers. Our experts regularly comment on current policy issues in printed and electronic media.

Accordingly, WiseEuropa has had a major dissemination and outreach capacity in both Poland and Brussels, presenting research findings and facilitating discussions among policymakers, businesses, researches and the media during public and behind-closed-doors events.
