Ten years of GCRO outputs

GCRO was officially launched at a public event on 11 September 2008. In the ensuing decade, the GCRO has contributed significantly to deepening insight into the dynamics of the Gauteng City-Region, through a range of policy-oriented and scholarly outputs for audiences in the public sector, research communities and civil society – locally and abroad. Aside from publishing a large number of peer-reviewed academic publications, GCRO staff have assisted in many government policy development processes, and produced a range of outputs designed for wider appeal – including research reports, provocations, occasional papers, data-briefs and vignettes. The GCRO has also become known for its innovative approaches to data visualisations and infographics – making complex data sets and analyses easily available to wide audiences – for example through the regular Map of the Month series.
