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. As a rule, the research would be recent work that is not yet published in a journal or a book.
If you are interested in receiving notifications of the release of a new policy brief, please send an email with your name and affiliation to Carina Smit (carina@sun.ac.za).

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