The Mapungubwe Institute for Strategic Reflection (MISTRA) takes pleasure in presenting our first newsletter for 2022. We trust that you all had a good break and have your thinking caps firmly back on again. We look forward to another productive year of long-term strategic research publishing and policy analysis.
We started the year with the launch of our priority research project on, A Just Transition to a Low Carbon Future in South Africa on the 24th of February 2022.
In this issue, we also report on:
- the NRF Rating award to our Senior Researcher at the Humanity faculty,
- Book reviews for Land in South Africa: Contested Meanings and Nation Building and Leap 4.0: African Perspectives on the Fourth Industrial Revolution; and
- Published opinion pieces written by MISTRA staff and chapter authors of our Low Carbon publication.
We hope you enjoy the issue.
