WACSI was established by the Open Society Initiative for West Africa (OSIWA) in December 2005 to enhance the capacity of civil society in the region. The Institute was set up in an attempt to bridge the institutional and operational gaps identified in civil society. WACSI’s role is to serve as a resource centre engaged in training, research, documentation, and policy dialogue for CSOs in West Africa. The advocacy work of the Institute is conducted through its policy dialogue process, which brings together different stakeholders to deliberate on topical issues that affect the West African States. Position papers are published by the Institute and disseminated to policymakers.
