Research is of the utmost importance to the programme. Due to the great need for research on the improvement and status of governance in South Africa, the programme finds itself in a favourable position to do not only desktop research, but to contribute to the specialist area in contribution to research, which can improve the manifestation of governance in South Africa. A variety of research topics in the field of Governance and Political Transformation makes it possible for students to work in a field also close to their vocation and in doing this, changing poor governance to good governance practices. Over the years, a number of articles and conference papers have been delivered in this field.
