GCRO 2021/22 Annual Report
2021/22 marked the second year in the GCRO's 2020/21 to 2024/25 five year strategy. The year continued to see COVID-19 related disruptions to normal operations, with most staff continuing to work at home for extended periods. However, it also saw many exciting developments and achievements. Rashid Seedat took over from Dr. Rob Moore as Executive Director in June 2021, entering at a point of high energy as GCRO prepared for the launch of the sixth iteration of the Quality of Life Survey. QoL 6 (2020/21) results were released to a large online audience in September 2021. The event was followed by significant media interest, five OpEds published by GCRO staff, and multiple presentations of the findings to government. Another highlight of the year was three well-attended webinars, co-hosted with the Mapungubwe Institute for Strategic Reflection (MISTRA), responding to the impacts and implications of the July 2021 violence.
