Call for proposals

Afrobarometer is inviting bids from organizations interested in serving as the National Partner (NP) for Namibia, eSwatini and Angola. Under Afrobarometer’s direction, the selected NP will conduct a nationally representative sample survey of the adult population of each country. The successful bidder will further act as the representative of Afrobarometer in the respective country for the duration of the partnership and will be eligible to participate in Afrobarometer meetings, workshops, and other capacity building and management activities.


Afrobarometer conducts a comparative series of public attitude surveys covering approximately 35 countries in each two-year “round.” Round 8 surveys will take place from 2019. Based on representative national samples, the surveys measure citizen attitudes to democracy and governance, markets and civil society, and a range of related topics. The surveys are repeated on a regular basis to allow comparisons over time and across space.
Afrobarometer is dedicated to three main objectives:

  • to produce scientifically reliable data on public opinion in Africa
  • to build institutional capacity for survey research in Africa
  • to broadly disseminate and apply survey results

The Afrobarometer Network, a consortium of independent survey research institutions based mainly in Africa, implements Afrobarometer comprising of:

  • Core Partners that provide leadership to the Network and technical assistance to NPs on survey management, research design, fundraising, publication, and the dissemination of survey results
  • National Partners in each participating country that are responsible for survey fieldwork and dissemination of survey results at the country level
  • Support Units that provide technical and capacity building support to the Network

The results of Afrobarometer surveys are fed directly into the policy process in order to inform the public debate about democracy, governance, and other policy and development issues. We seek to reach diverse audiences, including decision-makers in governments and parliaments, policy advocates and civic educators, journalists, researchers, donor agencies and investors, as well as average Africans who wish to become better informed.
