     March 29 2012


    Since 1975 Professor Mkandawire’s writing has explored some of Africa’s greatest social, political and developmental challenges ranging from the practices of development and wage employment in six African countries for the International Institute for Labour Studies in Geneva (1975), to theoretical and practical issues arising from capital goods, accumulation and technological change in Africa for the International Labour Organisation (1981), to the economic experience of 30 years of independence in Africa, and the political economy of privatisation in Africa in the 1990s. 

    Professor Mkandawire began his career as a journalist in his native Malawi in 1960, where he was assistant editor of the Malawi News until 1962. He has taught at the Universities of Zimbabwe and Stockholm, and holds a Doctorate in Letters from Rhodes University.
