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.
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).
We aim to develop group members by giving them the opportunity to increase their skill sets in order to be able to publish and compete in the international market.
- Encourage research and debate on economic development and well-being issues affecting our country, Africa and the developing world.
- Contribute to a deeper understanding of economic development and well-being issues in the Africa continent and elsewhere.
- Conduct research training workshops, seminars and conferences related to the field of economic development and well-being.
- Publish high quality research papers in high ranked journals.
- Create a conducive platform which inspires collaborative efforts between our members of the group.
- Collaborate with other research groups and specialists in the fields of economic development and well-being.
- To attract and motivate postgraduate students and emerging researchers to pursue research related to economic development and well-being.
- So as to create research from “within the African research community” to address the challenges that face Africa and other developing continents.
