CSEA is one of the founding African partners of the GEGAfrica project. GEGAfrica comprises a network of African think-tanks and scholars working on issues of global economic governance and how they affect Africa, and particularly South Africa.

The aims of the GEGAfrica project are to undertake and promote research driven by African needs, to advise policymakers, and both stimulate and inform public and media interest on global economic governance. It is a joint initiative of the International Development Law Unit at the University of Pretoria and the South African Institute of International Affairs (SAIIA).
