The ACEIR working paper series
Our working papers are intended to disseminate findings of ongoing research to researchers, students and the broader academic and policy communities. The papers span ACEIR's focus on African inequality trends, spatial inequality, and taxation and...
Our purpose
We aim to contribute to deep, multidimensional and interdisciplinary understandings of inequality in the context of different African countries, and to a continental and global understanding of how inequalities can be overcome.
Our model of collaboration
The Centre uses a hub-and-spoke model. The University of Cape Town hosts the hub and the South Africa node. The Ghana node is convened by the University of Ghana and the Kenya node by the University of Nairobi.
Contributing to policy debates
We work with the national statistical offices and government departments of different African countries to profile, map and analyse multidimensional inequalities and their interactions. These research collaborations offer a platform for dialogue on...
Our team
The ACEIR team comprises researchers from the universities of Ghana, Kenya and Cape Town and a small project management and communications team. The hub and nodes are each led by researchers of stature and who are well established in the...

Addressing the data challenge

Given the current frailties of African data, a foundation of ACEIR’s work in each node is getting the data right. This will require frontier data scholarship and holds great possibilities for capacity development across the continent. Plans are underway to support ACEIR partners and its network to create their own data hubs. Leading this work is Prof. Martin Wittenberg and colleagues at DataFirst, based at the University of Cape Town. DataFirst has over 20 years’ experience in the curation and dissemination of data and is the only data service on the continent to have achieved the CoreTrustSeal certification as a trusted repository. Over the last decade DataFirst has also developed a specific competence in the assessment of data quality issues and in the harmonisation of data.
