Networks and Alliances
SPII belongs to the following networks and alliances that support our achievement of
our goals and objectives:
The Southern African Social Protection Experts Network, SASPEN, is a not-for-profit loose alliance of stakeholders, scholars and consultants who engage with social protection in the SADC region
Coalition for the South African Ratification of International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (ICESCR Ratification Campaign).
• Basic Needs Basket Network Southern Africa
• SADC – BIG Coalition
• Financial Sector Campaigns Coalition
• Community Constituency, NEDLAC
Special Focus: NEDLAC Through its affiliation with the FSCC (the Financial Sector Campaigns Coalition), SPII is a key participant in the NEDLAC (National Economic Development and Labour Council) structures. The Director of SPII is the Community Constituency convenor of the Public Finance and Monetary Policy Chamber, and represents the sector on a variety of task teams and executive and management committees. The Director also represents Community Constituency on the Unemployment Insurance Board. SPII uses this avenue to contribute the research findings and recommendations into applied policy-making and debating fora. With its wide-ranging contacts in both civil society and the academic world, SPII has been able to facilitate the inclusion of a number of experts in specific interests to promote the participation of these sectors within NEDLAC, including around issues of economic justice and climate change. In 2012, SPII was also able to circulate to the PFMPC SPII’s monthly reports on the inflationary impact on food prices with a specific pro-poor analysis, to deepen the Chamber’s understanding of the impact of monetary policy
