Regional Integration

We provide thematic research and updates on the status of regional integration and development in SADC.


We assess major developments in the region; provide an overview of sectoral and industry opportunities in the region and evaluate regional policy-making and implementation.

We provide a quarterly report tracking regional integration across the Southern Africa Development Community (SADC). Each issue aims to provide high-level and discursive analysis of regional integration in SADC and Africa more broadly. Each issue covers a specific thematic area related to regional integration and regional economic governance.
