An explicit aim of the Project is to improve public understanding of, and public discourse on, these complex problems.
Critical debate will be pro-actively stimulated through the effective dissemination of results and the provision of public forums for informed and open debate through publications (working papers, newsletters, briefs, etc.), workshops, seminars, conferences and books.
Econ3x3, an online forum, is an initiative of the Project. It is intended to create a platform and exposure for research findings and in that way make a contribution to an informed policy debate in South Africa. It publishes accessible research- and expertise-based contributions. The forum encourages debate on an integrated and consistent policy response to unemployment, inequality and poverty and a strong engagement between research and policy making.
We invite contributions from economists and other social science researchers, policymakers and relevant experts.
