Francis Teal visits Stellenbosch

Posted by Johan Fourie on 2013-03-06

Francis Teal just completed a two week visit to the Department of Economics. He was the deputy director of the Centre for Studies of African Economies at Oxford University from 1996 until 2012 and is an international expert in the fields of applied micro-econometrics and African labour markets. He has worked on a wide range of trade and development policy issues; currently he is working on projects studying the evolution of firms in Africa and labour markets.

Dr. Teal visited Stellenbosch as part of a research project, funded by the faculty's Elite Research Fund, that attempts to measure the effect of schooling investment on the labour market outcomes of South African workers. He was also the keynote speaker at a ReSEP workshop, delivered a presentation at a departmental seminar and had meetings with graduate students about their research.
