“This programme was conceived as a comprehensive research, policy formulation, and capacity-building initiative with a number of South African partners and international partners.
The idea was that we would try to get prepared for having a government in place in South Africa that would want to listen to high-quality research . . . We wanted to try to mobilise South African researchers, South African policy makers, with some of the best international capacities in such a way that we could respond to the obvious challenges that you see in South Africa."
