From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Established in 1929[1] the South African Institute of Race Relations (SAIRR) is a leading research and policy organisation in South Africa. The Institute is "one of the oldest liberal institutions in the country,"[2] and is independent of government and all political parties; it sees its role as serving its members and the country at large to make South Africa the political and economic success of the continent by promoting liberal democratic values.[1]

The Institute investigates facts surrounding social and economic conditions in South Africa and disseminating its findings as widely as possible. It aims to promote best practice policy to address issues such as poverty and inequality, and to promote economic growth.

The SAIRR tracks trends in every area of South Africa's development ranging from business and the economy to crime, living conditions, and politics.
