Abstract

Young emerging scholars and ethnographers joined HSRC research teams and gathered insightful case studies to shed new light on land hunger. Prof. Leslie Bank, Tim Hart and Anele Abraham report. To deepen insights into the nature and extent of land hunger in rural South Africa, the HSRC's Economic Performance and Development research unit (EPD) initiated a research programme where young emerging scholars and ethnographers from universities across South Africa were funded on a competitive basis to join HSRC research teams in district municipalities.
