​Who Are We?     

The Economic Development and Well-being Research Group (EDWRG) was formed in January 2018. The EDWRG is a collaborative research group consisting of both postgraduate students and academics who share a passion in the field of development economics and well-being.

What Do We Do?

As a research group, we aim to publish high quality, relevant research, which addresses the developmental and well-being challenges in Africa. Furthermore, we aim to develop young researchers through skills transfer and skills development and to give them access to the gateway of internationally-recognised research.

Our Vision

To become a nationally and internationally recognised research group in the field of development economics and well-being, which can provide solutions to the developmental challenges of Africa and other developing continents (countries).
