The Institute for Policy Studies (IPS) was founded in 1963. IPS has supported major social movements by producing books, films, and articles; educating key policymakers and the general public; and crafting strategies in support of peace, justice, and the environment. IPS was involved in the anti-apartheid movement. In 1977, it began a South Africa project that produced a series of studies and books on the subject. In 1985, IPS Fellow Roger Wilkins helped found the Free South Africa Movement, which organized a year-long series of demonstrations that led to the imposition of U.S. sanctions. (Source: IPS website)
