Hazel Feigenblatt, Global Integrity’s Managing Director (pictured above), has been invited to become an observer of the Ibrahim Index (IIAG) Advisory Council, a body of eminent academic and professional experts in the field of governance that discusses ways to improve the Ibrahim Index of African Governance (IIAG).
Global Integrity just completed the first round of the new African Integrity Indicators in partnership with the Mo Ibrahim Foundation. The indicators assess key social, economic, political and anti-corruption mechanisms at the national level in over 50 African countries and will be a new data source for the IIAG and will be available to the public soon.
“Given the close collaboration between Global Integrity (GI) and the Mo Ibrahim Foundation, the Advisory Council, and consequently the IIAG, will be strengthened by your contributions,” Dr. Mo Ibrahim, Chairman of the Mo Ibrahim Foundation, said in a letter.
“At Global Integrity we have tremendous respect for their work and it is an honor to be asked to serve as an observer at the IIAG, a world-class, leading index,” Ms. Feigenblatt said.
A native of Costa Rica, Ms. Feigenblatt has led the Global Integrity Report, the African Integrity Indicators and other research projects at Global Integrity. She’s also a three time award-winning investigative journalist and a former Fulbright Humphrey Fellow.
