Work and Research

My research focus is on the role of law in development processes within Africa. My expertise lies in Law, governance and development. My interest is in employing legal doctrines, principles, tools and practices to address everyday development challenges facing people in the global South, specifically in Africa. I engage the study of the rule of law in inclusive development through all its aspects: socioeconomic, development, human development and political development. Currently I am working on issues of promotion of socio-economic and development rights; and legal/economic empowerment in transition/fragile states.
