Policy Dialogues

Policy Dialogues

We regularly engage in, or facilitate, public dialogues on economic and other public policy challenges facing SADC countries and the rest of the continent.

 

Our group of experts provide research-based policy solutions to promote regional integration and we contribute to the discourse on African development through documentaries, media engagements and public dialogues.

At PESA we relish strategic collaboration and critical thinking. As expert thought leaders on regional integration, our Team provides strategic analysis, engages in public dialogues, and assists with driving the development of policy dialogues through broadcast media and publications.
