Message from the Director
Prof. Mubiana Macwang'i
Welcome to the Institute of Economic and Social Research (INESOR)
The Institute of Economic and Social Research (INESOR) is a center for social science research of the University of Zambia. INESOR has continued to undertake interdisciplinary social science research with the support and collaboration of various stakeholders in Government, International Organizations, Non-Governmental Organizations, Corporate Organizations and other Universities within Zambia, regionally and abroad. As a requirement, INESOR staff participate in teaching and postgraduate students’ supervision in different Schools and Community Services
INESOR pledges to work extra harder in promoting and upholding its role as the University of Zambia centre of economic and social research and consultancy. The challenge of sourcing adequate funds to run the institute in a more sustainable manner calls for collective efforts by all the staff. The Institute staffing levels are currently lean. And in this end, various positions will be advertised. While conducting consultancy services, the Institute endeavors to strike a balance between research, teaching and service to UNZA community.
As much as INESOR has been connected to the main campus internet server, and this is very much appreciated, the internet connectivity needs to be improved. INESOR desires to continue enhancing institutional links and cooperation with the University, the government, donors and private sector, within the region and internationally, so as to continue enjoying the good academic standing and recognition that it has hitherto enjoyed.
