PLAAS Biennial Report 2016-2017

by Ursula Arends, Mologadi Makwela in 2018

This report summarises some of PLAAS's key achievements, and describes the content of our work for 2016 and 2017. It lists a  rich trove of outputs and publications, and bears testament to my colleagues' considerable capacity and appetite for hard work: a vibrant and intellectually stimulating postgraduate teaching programme; 26 donor funded research projects on topics ranging from agricultural commercialisation in Zambia to fisheries crime in South Africa; three books and 37 journal articles; 223 conferences and seminars; participation in critically important policy processes in South Africa and abroad, including the Parliamentary High Level Panel on the Assessment of Key Legislation and Accelerated Change; numerous radio and television experiences on the part of our researchers... the list just goes on and on. It is a record of achievements of which the researchers and support staff of PLAAS can be justly proud.
