JOBS AND GROWTH
The Jobs and Growth Programme engages with the policy choices South Africa faces by analysing existing policy and outcomes, assessing future policy directions, and offering practical, market-oriented alternatives.
THINK TANK NETWORK
In 2009 CDE launched an initiative to build links with think tanks in important democratic developing countries. Considerable work has been done with Indian and Brazilian experts looking at common challenges with SA.
Our Education Programme draws on many years of experience in analysing complex national policies and learning from international best practice to identify a sound foundation on which to build a better education system.
