MISTRA Annual Report


The 2022/23 financial year of the Mapungubwe Institute for Strategic Reflection (MISTRA) was an eventful one, as South Africa and the world started recovering from the Covid-19 pandemic.

The year, however, started immediately with other crises: full-scale war in Ukraine; the devastating floods in eThekwini and contiguous parts of KwaZulu-Natal, and an intensifying electricity crisis in South Africa. Such crises would test the resilience of any institution, let alone a non-governmental research organisation.

MISTRA is therefore proud that it was able to continue with the  industry necessary to produce cutting-edge research that helps to inform policymakers and practitioners in the public, private and civil society sectors. In part, this is because crises pose strategic questions that humanity has to grapple with. They also present opportunities for a better way forward.
