About the Researcher

Brief Statement of Research Interest

My academic expertise and research interests are in the allied fields of development planning, shelter, urban studies, applied economics, informality, institutional transformation, governance and statecraft. His professional work in these areas spans policy research and technical assistance, funded by donors and aid agencies (includes USAid, DFID, IDRC, Oxfam, Mott Foundation, Interfund); national and international universities; international organisations (UNDP, UNCHS, UMP), non-governmental organisations; national departments, and, various municipalities. His published work includes articles in national and international journals in these areas; co-authored articles in books on sustainable human settlement development refracted through the lenses of transformative statecraft; edited a special edition of a journal on urbanity and the urban reconstruction; and contributed to and co-edited a book on housing praxis in post-apartheid South Africa. He also on an ad-hoc basis lends policy/research support and advice (housing and human settlement development) to the various local authorities, housing institutions and non-governmental organisations, the national Department of Housing, and the Presidency. He is presently involved in capacity building initiatives for, amongst others, senior government officials from national, provincial and local government via Stellenbosch University’s Executive Training Programme in the broad areas of development planning and systems/law/policy.
