About this grant

The University of the Western Cape was established in 1960 to provide tertiary education to the colored population of the Western Cape Province in South Africa. The multilevel government initiative is a project of the Dullar Omar Institute based at the law faculty of the university. It is a multidisciplinary research initiative that focuses on governance challenges within the state, and develops tools to measure government’s performance at local, provincial, and national levels. Past support has enabled the Dullar Omar Institute to develop several barometers that measure government performance and delivery. This grant will enable the institute to consolidate the barometers into one comprehensive instrument that will be used to produce data on an array of issues.
