The CEIC-CMI Cooperation Programme conducts research on economic, social and political development in Angola. It aims to enhance public debate on Angola’s many governance challenges and to provide policy recommendations for a more equitable society.

In a recent CEIC-CMI study on challenges in the booming public construction sector, Tina Søreide, senior researcher at CMI, identifies ten key challenges. The study has caught public interest in Angola and was extensively covered in one of the most influential weekly papers, O País. While the newspaper translates “challenges” to “sins”, CEIC and CMI are nevertheless happy to contribute to a more informed debate on corruption and transparency.
