This report begins with the mission terms of reference as well as the methodology adopted in formulating the mission's conclusions and recommendations. It then proceeds to examine the rationale behind, and the assumptions underlying, the decision to develop a project strengthening the relationship between, on the one hand, public policy and its management, and, on the other, the various social science disciplines. The third part of the report focuses on the mandate of CODESRIA, and discusses its role and impact in integrating social science research with governance and economic management in Africa. The fourth and last part of the report discusses the main outline of a project aimed at enhancing the capacity of the public sector to optimize the benefits of social science research findings.
