The Mapungubwe Institute for Strategic Reflection (MISTRA) is pleased to share with you its third newsletter for 2021. We are half-way through the year and are proud to share our latest news with you. It has been a very tough year for all of us, but thanks to the dedication of the MISTRA staff we have been able to soldier on and continue doing stellar work.

In this issue, we report on:

  • our working paper release and webinar on youth in the time of a global pandemic;
  • the launch of our priority research project on the politics of coalitions in South Africa;
  • Indlulamithi Day 2021;
  • presentations by MISTRA staff at various public engagements; and
  • opinion pieces by MISTRA staff published in the media.

We hope you enjoy this issue.
