African Centre of Excellence for Inequality Research

The African Centre of Excellence for Inequality Research (ACEIR) is one of 13 research centres of the African Research Universities Alliance (ARUA). The ACEIR hub is housed at UCT, under the direction of SALDRU’s Professor Murray Leibbrandt, and its South Africa research node is based at SALDRU.

The Ghana research hub is situated at the University of Ghana and the Kenya node at the University of Nairobi.

This hub-and-spoke model enables research and capacity building by bringing together top African researchers of stature and who are well established in the contemporary African and broader international inequality and poverty communities for research, teaching, and policy engagement collaborations.
