Mission: Founded in 1985, the mission of the International Center for Economic Growth (ICEG) is to enhance the capacity of indigenous policy research institutes in developing and transitional countries to foster the policies and institutions of a market economy. ICEG works with a network of these indigenous institutes to promote sustainable economic growth and human development, thereby improving the lives and opportunities of the world's citizens. ICEG seeks solutions to social and economic problems through market-based analysis and mechanisms and actively seeks the involvement of other stakeholders in policy reform including governments, multilateral organizations, NGOs, and the for-profit sector.
Programs: Located in over 100 countries, ICEG's international network of member institutes is the core of the Center's program. The network is composed primarily of independent, non-governmental organizations, involved in economic and social research in their own countries. It is these institutes which have played a pivotal role in the remarkable changes in economic policy that have swept the world in the last two decades. ICEG's network is the mechanism by which the knowledge gained in one country can be effectively shared with those working on similar reforms elsewhere. This is done through ICEG's web site - http://www.iceg.org, its Newsletter, publications, conferences and seminars, training programs (strategic planning, communication strategies, communication techniques), and policy reform projects in which the experience of an institute in policy reform is shared with other institutes seeking similar reforms and with other interested parties in the public and private sectors.
