Drawing upon recent and on-going research in South Africa, this workshop shared knowledge about the development of new measures of spatial inequality and their application as explanatory variables in order to better understand outcomes at both the individual level (e.g. people’s attitudes towards inequality and options for redress) and the area level (e.g. hotspots of social unrest and violent crime). The programme and presentations can be downloaded above. Any other documentation will be uploaded when it becomes available.
The Policy > Action Network (P>AN) is hosted by the Research Use and Impact Assessment Unit (RIA) at the Human Sciences Research Council (HSRC) and is supported by the Department of Science and Technology.
P>AN supports the policy community by sourcing information on social policy with the aim of contributing to rigour in policy making and greater participation in policy processes. This site contains a range of resources including case studies, policy briefs, research reports, events info and ‘how-to’ info on getting research into policy, and getting policy into action.
