Consultancy research is the most prominent form of knowledge production in African Social Sciences and Humanities in Africa. Through a discussion of the social conditions of knowledge production in Africa, this article explores the potential and limits of consultancy research as a dominant form of knowledge production. By tapping into the consultancy archive, a set of methodological insights emerge to further current debates on the decolonization of knowledge and the integration of social sciences and humanities knowledge at the centre of public policy debates.

Dr. Euclides Gonçalves is a social anthropologist and director of Kaleidoscopio, based in Mozambique. He holds a PhD in Social Anthropology from the University of Witwatersrand (2012).
