Dr Julius Omona to lead East African Region cluster on GETSPA Research Project

The Gender Equitable and Transformative Social Policy for Post-COVID-19 Africa (GETSPA) Project, which is based at the Institute of African Studies at the University of Ghana, and supported by the Open Society Foundations of Africa, has commissioned multi-country teams across Africa, with the objective to transform - through research, advocacy, networking, documentation and constituency building activities- the approaches to and cultures of social policymaking and implementation in Africa. The research activities under GETSPA focus on understanding the framing and value propositions underpinning social policy; the assumptions about the role of the state, markets and society; the interface between social and economic policies; and the socio-economic development outcomes of social policy, particularly in terms of gender, class and spatial inequalities.

GETSPA is an Africa-wide study project, consisting of 10 clusters and Dr Julius Omona, an Associate Professor in the Department of Social Work and Social Administration at Makerere University will lead the East African Region Cluster comprising of Makerere University, Kenyatta University, University of Dar es Salaam and University of Rwanda.
