Our Story

The LIPID or the Institute, in short, is a non-partisan, not-for-profit institution. It’s Independent of political parties or political persuasions of any kind.
The establishment of LIPD results from a research study we conducted two years ago on the causes of socioeconomic and political conflict and poverty in Liberia. The study results indicated, among other things, that the Liberian nation is vulnerable to future civil unrest and is, therefore, in dire need of political, economic, social, and financial paradigm shifts to survive in the ensuing decades. Of course, Liberia’s survival is only possible if every citizen becomes a responsible, positive, and active change agent in political, economic, and social decision-making processes. Actual democratic governance is not and can never be relegated to a spectator sport. In other words, if we don’t participate in the democratic system, it will not work for or protect our interests.

Our Vision, Passion, Purpose, and Mission

To bring together remarkable people who are passionate about making the world a better place by being better leaders in their communities and promoting socio-economic and political justice. To train and provide them with the tools, when we need to, and work together rather than alone. To research and identify factors that threaten Liberia’s democracy, stability, and prosperity, and to provide and advocate sustainable solutions to those threats.

With Your Help, We are Making The World a Better Place

“The ingredients of democracy include free and fair elections, freedom of speech, and freedom of the press, and freedom of assembly. While Democracy is taking root in Africa, the promise of full-fledge Democracy is receding; African governments are bent on putting journalists behind bars and cracking down on civil society, thus making Democracy in name only and not in substance” President Obama to the African Union.
