    MISTRA Monthly Briefing #5

    Date published:30 September  2013
    Article category: Papers

    In Issue Number #5 we provide the full text of the MISTRA Inaugural Annual Lecture presented by Prof Thandika Mkandawire, and a brief report on the MISTRA skaftien (brown bag session) with Prof Mkandawire. The skaftin session provided an opportunity for people who were unable to attend our Inaugural Annual Lecture - as well as those who had attended - but who had not had an opportunity to engage with him, to have a more in-depth interaction on the topic of the role of social compacts. 

    We also provide a report on a "Roundtable on Interrogating Methodologies on Labour Statistics in South Africa" facilitated by MISTRA following a debate in the media between Adcorp, Statistics SA and others around the issue of employment statistics.

    And we report back on a MISTRA workshop convened at the Human Sciences Research Council on MISTRA’s research project on Transdisciplinarity that sought to present, evaluate, and critique preliminary research findings from two of the three case studies selected for the project.

    We hope you find our Monthly Briefings informative and invite you to visit our website, where you will find more information on our research, key papers, media on MISTRA, as well as an Expression of Interest Form if you are interested in participating in any of the Institute’s research projects.
