Research on markets and social policy feature in Stellenbosch University Research Yearbook

Posted by Johan Fourie on 2014-04-01

Two members of the department, Prof Servaas van der Berg and Dr Willem H. Boshoff, received recognition for their outstanding research in the annual Stellenbosch University Research Yearbook.

Prof Van der Berg is the NRF Chair in the Economics of Social Policy and is highly respected for the way he uses analytical tools to study subjects like poverty, inequality, income distribution, public finance, social spending, labour markets, migration, regional development and social policies.
