Welcome to the South African Research Chair in Industrial Development!

The South African Research Chair in Industrial Development is funded by the Department of Science and Technology (DST), administered by the National Research Foundation (NRF) and hosted at the University of Johannesburg (UJ). Professor Fiona Tregenna is the Chair holder and leads the programme. She is also a Professor of Economics at UJ.

The South African Research Chair in Industrial Development is a university-based research programme in the field of industrial development. Our main activities are research and capacity building (especially the training of graduate students).

Examples of issues which our researchers and students are currently working on include: value chains in southern Africa; various aspects of deindustrialisation; structural change in South Africa; innovation; testing Kaldor’s laws; the effects of trade liberalisation on distribution in South Africa; the relationship between manufacturing and inequality internationally; and determinants of the spatial location of South African manufacturing firms.
