South Africa: A research program for social movements

In 2002, Alternatives was involved in the creation of the popular research and education group Research & Education in Development, mainly through developing a portal for research and networking on South African social movements. Using the content management system Drupal, the portal enables the social science research community to publish material, exchange points of view and stay on top of social movements in Southern Africa.

The site displayed coverage of the events surrounding the 2002 World Summit on Sustainable Development. It also has several articles on development and poverty reduction in South Africa and other parts of the world.
