Since the establishment of CIPE in 1983, the world has gone through many changes. CIPE has been at the forefront of promoting democratic governance and economic freedom around the globe. Our work is as important now as it was in 1983. Around the world, we see governments attempting to roll back and limit democracy. In many places, the private sector has been a target of anti-democratic movements. At CIPE, we believe that our work, which now spans over 100 projects in more than 50 countries, is essential in the fight to counter these movements. Our message has never changed: we will work to ensure that people realize the promise of economic freedom, democratic governance, and prosperity.
