About Us

Namibia Institute for Democracy (NID)

The Namibia Institute for Democracy (NID), founded in 1991, implements a range of civic education, civil society development, socio-political survey and research and anti-corruption programs in Namibia. Funded by a variety of donors, these programs all aim to strengthen civil society and the public’s capacity to interact with government at all levels in an informed manner, to strengthen democratic institutions, and to provide opportunities for the exchange of public opinion and the support of public debate. In this process, the NID consults with the government, civil society, interest groups, political parties, the media, institutional authorities and private citizens in the design and implementation of its programs.

Who are we

The NID is governed by a Board of Directors composed of representatives of different political backgrounds as well as civil society and the private sector. Through partnerships and coalitions with other institutions and organizations from government, civil society and the private sector who assist in program implementation, the NID has managed to keep its staff component small, leading to a savings of cost which can be utilized for program implementation instead. Such partnerships have also ensured that program objectives have been generally exceeded.
