Indlulamithi South Africa Scenarios 2030 Research Conference

1 - 2 March 2018

Gordon Institute for Business Science (GIBS), Auditorium, 26 Melville Road, Illovo

8:00 am - 4:00 pm

MISTRA is leading the research and methodology of the Indlulamithi South Africa Scenarios 2030 project. After a series of workshops and interviews over the past few months MISTRA will host a research conference, on behalf of Indlulamithi on the 1st and 2nd March 2018, at the Gordon Institute for Business Science (GIBS).

Indlulamithi is a multi-stakeholder initiative born out of a need to develop a framework to better understand our country’s trajectory in order to help make informed decisions and develop policies with long-term aims. It seeks to bring together ideas from different stakeholders around the question, ‘What would a socially cohesive South Africa look like and to what degree would it be attainable by 2030?’.

The conference aims to delve deeper into some of the questions emerging through the research: factors that interviewed participants felt were highly uncertain, highly impactful, or in need of further investigation.

The conference will draw together academic experts, policy practitioners and young, emerging thinkers to grapple with some of the nation’s most pressing questions. These will include: mother-tongue education, human trafficking, labour law, the South African family, intergenerational trauma and bringing the economy of South Africa back on a higher growth trajectory.

We are looking to attract an audience with diverse experience and expertise, offering a platform for rigorous, creative engagement.
