SWOP has been running a breakfast seminar series since the early 1990s. Currently the series is sponsored by the Friedrich Ebert Foundation. Seminars start at 7.30am at Hofmeyr House on the Wits East Campus with a brief 20-25 minute input from the researchers around the implications of their research, followed by an open discussion. The seminars end at 9.00am. Attendance is free of charge.
