MISTRA’s Monthly Briefing is a newsletter from
the Mapungubwe Institute for Strategic Reflection. It aims to inform
MISTRA’s partners about the Institute’s research, strategic reflections,
published papers, and other news relating to the network of people and
organisations committed to MISTRA’s strategic engagement with the issues facing
South Africa. The briefing is issued monthly.
