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.
