CIPE is one of the four core institutes of the National Endowment for Democracy and an affiliate of the US Chamber of Commerce.
Since 1983 CIPE has been working from the ground up with partners to find locally driven solutions to problems that affect the lives of millions of people. We at CIPE believe that democracy is at its strongest when the private sector is flourishing. Working with our local partners that include business associations, chambers of commerce, think tanks, universities and advocacy organizations, CIPE is helping create the enabling environment for business to thrive. This can only happen when the core institutions of democracy are strong and transparent. We are there to help build those institutions. That is our mission. That is our strength.
