The Public Affairs Research Institute (PARI)
The Public Affairs Research Institute (PARI) is an independent research institute based in Johannesburg. Established in May 2010, the Institute brings theoretically-informed social science research into the service of answering some of the major questions facing the public sector. PARI approaches this from two angles: analyses of the organisational dynamics of the public sector and research into social change, citizenship and governance.
- work with government partners to improve the capacity and accountability of the public sector
- improve the quality of public debate and scholarly discussion in South Africa about the public sector and the state, as well as state-society relations
- support the development of a cohort of talented researchers and scholars to undertake rigorous research on the challenges of building state capacity.
PARI and the NRF Chair in Local Histories and Present Realities at Wits University are inviting applications for a postdoctoral grant for research on social change. For more information, click here. The deadline for application submissions is 20 May 2013.
Masters scholarships for 2014 will open later in the year. Applicants will be asked to submit completely up-to-date applications.
