Durban workshop to remember Sam Moyo, 13-14 June

Zimbabwe’s Despondent Political Economy a Durban workshop to remember Sam Moyo, 13-14 June

In Durban, the University of KwaZulu-Natal’s School of Built Environment and Development Studies (SoBEDS) and Centre for Civil Society (CCS), invite the public to join more than a dozen friends, colleagues and students of Sam Moyo to remember and build upon his contributions to political economy and political ecology. Sam was an Honorary Professor at CCS until his tragic death in an auto accident during a labour studies conference in Delhi last November.

The hosts are his former Zimbabwean colleague Oliver Mtapuri and Sarah Bracking – both full-time faculty at UKZN SoBEDS – and Patrick Bond (now Honorary Prof at CCS and also professor of political economy at the University of the Witwatersrand). Dr Shauna Mottiar is Acting Director of CCS. The workshop will review current debates regarding economic development, poverty, environment and politics.
