I am from Pietermaritzburg. I did my undergraduate studies at Rhodes majoring in Industrial and Economic Sociology and Political and International studies. I am currently doing my honours in Industrial and Economic Sociology. I am interested in exploring workers’ perceptions, knowledge and thought about the impact and consequences of the economic negotiations and policies established between South Africa’s government and the Washington Consensus, namely: the World Bank, IMF and WTO.
I will also be looking into how these macro-economic and political negotiations impact the local economy and the everyday working relations within the work place. The research will be taking place in Pietermaritzburg, South Africa, in the manufacturing and distribution industry.
