About our Consultancy Services
Our commissioned research consists of requests that have been lodged for MISTRA to provide research in a variety of areas. At the same time, MISTRA has itself identified areas of strategic research that it can conduct, in partnership with other institutions.
MISTRA's Advisory Services are conducted objectively and dispassionately based on client briefs or as follow up to our core research. MISTRA also facilitates intellectual and experiential debate on the issues we research. The facilitated debates are conducted through partnerships with a wide range of institutions and individuals.
