Our institutional, academic and administrative functioning is geared towards enabling, supporting and encouraging our faculty members to undertake rigorous, transdisciplinary, and collaborative research. Over the past nine years, JGU’s faculty members have collectively produced over 2000 publications. These include research papers and articles published in national and international journals, edited and authored books, book chapters and several research reports, many of which have been in some of the world’s most prestigious journals and publishing houses. Over 50% of these publications are international publications and over 50% are published in other journals. A mark of our success relates to JGU faculty research being increasingly referred to by scholars and practitioners around the world.
