GAPP is South Africa’s First Global Think‑Tank.

Ctrl Alt Del: Resetting Government

Resetting government is an initiative convened by the Government and Public Policy (GAPP) Foundation to provide practical and feasible solutions to urgent governance questions.

Our Aim

GAPP is a Think-Tank on Government and Public Policy in South Africa.
Unlike an academic or a research institute, a think-tank is primarily devoted to making and winning arguments in the public domain.
GAPP will work to win the argument that building autonomous and professional administrations is vital to the long-term development of the country.
