On Tuesday, 16 April 2024, the Southern Africa Labour and Development Research Unit (SALDRU) hosted the second annual Francis Wilson Memorial Lecture in partnership with DataFirst at the University of Cape Town (UCT).

The lecture, presented by Trevor Manuel, one of South Africa’s and the world’s longest-serving ministers of finance was titled: “How to build – and break – a capable state: structural reform and institution building in the democratic era”.

The lecture is hosted in honour of Francis Wilson, who was the founding director of SALDRU (in 1975) and of DataFirst (in 2001); and who was among the most pre-eminent economic researchers of his time.
