THE INTERNSHIP COMPANY
They are South Africa’s premier research institute on international issues. As an independent, non-government think tank, we have a long and proud history of providing thought leadership in Africa. A centre for research excellence and a home for stimulating public discussion.
The work spans social development, foreign policy, governance, the environment, and economic policy, linking local experiences with global debates. This body of African-generated knowledge provides local and regional decision-makers with independent, evidence-based options for Africa’s future development.
The findings are made available freely in the form of publications, policy briefs, videos, articles, workshops and conferences. An open platform is provided for the public to engage with these issues, and facilitate discussions between a wide variety of stakeholders. Their public outreach activities inspire students to take an interest in international affairs, and help develop their research and leadership skills.
