Project Logo

The three interlocking triangles, and the 3x3 element, reflect several elements of the approach of the Research Project.

These include: that the three major socio-economic problems of unemployment, inequality and poverty are interlinked and inseparable – and that it will require an integrated policy approach to tackle these three problems.

This implies that we need researchers from three key discourses, i.e. macroeconomics, labour economics and poverty/development analysis, to work together. But also, that we need economic research that engages with other disciplines and across discourses and divides, also ideological divides. That policy analysis needs to engage with all segments of the economy: survivalist, informal and formal. And that we need to pursue policy research using a triangulation of methodologies (e.g. quantitative, qualitative, etc.) and the triangulation of data sources.
