Neil Aggett Labour Studies Unit (NALSU)
The Neil Aggett Labour Studies Unit (NALSU) is a labour studies hub at Rhodes University built around a vibrant team of core staff members, Associates and postgraduate students. NALSU was established in the Institute of Social and Economic Research (ISER)through a partnership between Rhodes University and the Department of Economic Development, Environmental Affairs and Tourism (DEDEAT) of the Eastern Cape Provincial Government. It took its first tentative steps as a unit in 2012 with one part-time staff member, and formally launched in April 2014 following the appointment of its first full-time staff contingent in 2013. NALSU has developed active research partnerships with a range of national and international research and advocacy organisations. It draws strength from its location in the Eastern Cape Province of South Africa, where the legacy of apartheid and the consequences of development choices made during the post-apartheid period are keenly felt.
The Neil Aggett Labour Studies Unit (NALSU) is accountable to Rhodes University through the Institute of Social and Economic Research (ISER), in which it is based. Until 2018, when the funding of its consolidation phase was concluded, it was also accountable to a Steering Committee that included the Eastern Cape Provincial Government (principally DEDEAT).
