The Institute for Popular Democracy (IPD) "is non-profit research and advocacy institute. It houses a multi-disciplinary team of activist scholars who have multi-level engagements with civil society groups, reform-minded government officials and government agencies.

"IPD was founded in 1986, the year the Marcos dictatorship fell. At its inception, it sought to maximize and broaden the emergent democratic space by actively promoting pluralism within the progressive movement and building coalitions for unified intervention in crucial national issues. It has always defined itself as an agent for democratization in the Philippines, seeking to enhance the capabilities of non-government organizations, people's organizations and progressive political formations."
