Title: FIFA 2010 World Cup Research Project
Creator: Human Sciences Research Council
Abstract: "The HSRC research project seeks to combine both academic and applied research - 'Social science that makes a difference'.The applied component seeks to contribute to city strategic and programme planning occurring at all levels of government, and involving a mix of stakeholders. The applied component is given effect through research, publications and through an annual poll of public attitudes to the World Cup.The academic component seeks to contribute to an understanding of mega events and urban development, both in respect of South Africa and internationally. The academic component is given effect through ad hoc collaboration with the Centre for Urban and Built Environment Studies (CUBES) of the University of the Witwatersrand, and through academic research conducted independently within the HSRC.Both the applied and the academic components will be further enhanced through collaboration with the Development Bank of Southern Africa (DBSA)."
