A DECADE OF QUALITY RESEARCH

We generate high quality academic research to better understand the drivers of institutional performance, and present informed and realistic solutions based on our research, in the form of publications, media content, seminars, workshops, conferences and academic curricula.

Our work with change agents across the public service and civil society to improve the implementation of policies provides unique insights into the effectiveness of service delivery, infrastructure, state performance and state society relations.

 

Our work is currently focused in the following areas:

  • Land governance
  • State reform
  • Education Governance
  • Local government
  • Energy and Society
  • Organisational and Institutional Studies

PARI is a Johannesburg-based organisation founded in May, 2010.
