The Kwame Nkrumah Ideological Institute (officially known as the Kwame Nkrumah Institute of Economics and Political Science or Winneba ideological Institute) was an educational body in Winneba founded to promote socialism in Ghana as well as the decolonization of Africa.[1] With the first stone being laid by Kwame Nkrumah on 18 February 1961, the Institute was designed to promote national independence, as almost all Ghanaians in the first Nkrumah government were trained in the United Kingdom or United States.[1] The Institute's Director was Kodwo Addison, a prominent Ghanaian activist.


The vast majority of students came from Ghana. However, as a pan-African institution, the Institute also educated students Nigeria, Senegal, Somalia.
