Abstract

My doctoral work, which I am currently attempting to publish during an NRF funded one year post-doc abroad in New York (that ends in July 2015), as well as collaborations that I have already begun with a mentor, Sharlene Swartz, display considerable overlap with the five research themes of the CoE in Human Development. I propose continuing both my (1) doctoral research publication work and the (2) collaboration with Prof Swartz, during a post-doc funded by the CoE in Human Development, to be based at the HSRC. This will lead to a minimum of four peer-reviewed publications in the first year of the envisaged post doc since a considerable amount of the fieldwork and planning for these projects have already been completed.
