On Wednesday, 26 April 2023, Petronilla Wandeto will hold a presentation at the Institute of Social Development (ISD) of the University of the Western Cape (UWC), South Africa. For the next months, Petronilla will be based at the UWC for her field research secondment. In her presentation, Petronilla will introduce the current state of her research project titled "Neopatrimonialism, Pockets of Effectiveness and Pro-Poor Policy-Making: The Case of Agro-Industrial Policy-Making in Kenya and Uganda."
In her research, Petronilla investigates productivity-enhancing political settlements in the agro-industrial sector which emerge in some neopatromnial settings in Sub-Saharan Africa. Comparing the two cases of Kenya and Uganda, Petronilla explores how the prevalent political settlements allow for the adoption and implementation of initiatives promoting agro-industrial development.
The presentation will be held in a hybrid format allowing for online participants to join via Zoom. At the UWC, the venue is 1C SOG Building. The presentation will take place at 12:30 pm (SAST). The Zoom link can be found in the ISD Seminar Invitation.
