Suluhu has been founded as a collaborative consulting team with strong roots in scholarly research and academic excellence. All of us are junior scholars and recent graduates of African, European, and American universities dedicated to make a change and put thorough analysis and investigation at the heart of consultancy work – a sphere we believe is too much dominated by superficial engagement and lack of contextualisation, in particular in complex and volatile political and social situations.
In 2015, consultants often seem to spend more time jetting around the world than embedding themselves into the nitty-gritty details of the area they work on or in. We follow a different philosophy. Many of us have spent years in specific countries or have gone back and forth for considerable time periods. We believe in the strength of local knowledge and get inspired by a deeper engagement with the issues we work on. We will say no to an offer if we cannot guarantee our fullest expertise and commitment. But we can also assure you that in case we do have the latter, our results and reports will go further.
