Findings of the Mandela Initiative and launch of the MI Final Report
The Mandela Initiative process, findings, and recommendations were informed by five years’ research that involved eight DST-NRF Research Chairs and 23 multi-sectoral action dialogues and other workshops on poverty and inequality topics and possible solutions to these challenges.
The seminar will be presented by Judy Favish, an affiliate of UCT's Southern Africa Labour and Development Research Unit and a member of the Poverty and Inequality Planning Group. Judy was part of the MI Secretariat and helped to solicit the final contributions to the report, shape the programme for the MI’s consultative workshop to discuss the draft report, and collate the final report.
The report, as well as a toolkit to reading the report, will be launched at the seminar with a few inputs by Emeritus Prof Francis Wilson, who was the national coordinator of the MI process.
Seminar room, level 4, School of Economics, Middle Campus. Lunch is served at 12:30 in the staff room next to the seminar room on the same level.
