Adam Salmon -


After his Masters at the IDS in 2009, Adam returned to this position at the Parliament of South Africa having taken a sabbatical to study on a Chevening Scholarship. He has since added to an extensive record of writing, presenting and reporting for political representatives.

His research work mostly addresses the gap between large amounts of data and the limited time; diverse cultures and varying qualifications of his clients. Adam works on monitoring and evaluation, policy and budget analysis in a team of 60 researchers, focusing on Home Affairs, including identification documents, migration and elections. His personal passion is bridging the digital divide with sustainable technology.
