ACCEDE pushes policy making and implementation

We also heard from Professor Lisa Thompson - Director of the African Centre for Citizenship and Democracy. The African Centre for Citizenship and Democracy at UWC’s School of Government is a research unit dedicated to constructive but critical examination of questions of governance and development from a citizen-centred viewpoint, prioritising the role of grassroots organisations and movements in their quest for more inclusive, democratic policies. Its research focuses on what we describe as the ‘hidden’ layer of policy making and implementation such as the level at which local government officials must interpret and concretise broadly defined policies relating to infrastructural development, social housing, water and sanitation provision and upgrading, among many others.
