Policy Briefs

The Policy Brief initiative is aimed at creating a wider audience for the research of the Department of Economics. The policy briefs are intended to be a jargon-free summary of a selection of research studies that are policy-relevant or closely linked to public debates.

For any queries regarding a specific policy brief, please contact Ronelle Burger (rburger@sun.ac.za) or the authors of the research.
