Research and Analysis

Feasibility Investigations.

While it may appear simple on the surface, making an informed decision usually necessitates significant research across multiple fields.  We run feasibility investigations from beginning to end and provide a Feasibility Study Report with findings and recommendations.


Theory of Change (ToC).

The organisation facilitates a collaborative process to describe the relationship between organisational planned activities and outcomes. Our intervention helps organisations to describe, design, and navigate an activity plan for long-term goal-setting and transformation processes. A key characteristic of the ToC is that it allows for the construction of a framework for monitoring, evaluation, and review by articulating the relationship between activities and outcomes. It also aids in the development of critical thinking and learning culture within organisations, as well as encouraging a collaborative approach to project planning and implementation.


Researcher Development.

At all stages of research, the organisation supports postgraduates through coaching and mentoring partnerships. We strive to instil a culture of diligence and endurance, thus reducing the scourge of university dropouts.

Conflict, Peace, and Security


The United Nations defines ‘Capacity-building’ as the process of developing and strengthening the skills, instincts, abilities, processes, and resources that organisations and communities need to survive, adapt, and thrive in a fast-changing world. The GI ADVISORY promotes the legitimacy of the means and methods of warfare and encourages access to and respect for the law of armed conflict. Our integrated training and awareness programmes can benefit institutions of higher learning, governments, NGOs, journalists, humanitarian organisations, and non-state armed groups. The information presented is based on first-hand United Nations peace operations and academic experience.

We believe that giving actual examples of armed conflict helps the audience to be aware of the effects, rights, and obligations of dealing with violence and war. We bring theory and experience together to provide possible answers to violent crises and armed conflict situations.


Forced Migration.

In addition to armed conflicts, other forms of violence and natural catastrophes drive people to flee their homes. GI ADVISORY supports humanitarian values to help victims of violence. By means of a broader appreciation of the relevant legal framework regulating the rights and responsibilities of displaced persons, we collaborate with other stakeholders to advise as to the reasons for and impact of forced human migration; the interpretation of current legislation and policies in South Africa; and the rights and responsibilities that accrue to refugees.
