Isaac Chinyoka wins Fox Fellowship
Isaac Chinyoka - a PhD student in the CSSR and Sociology Department - has won a prestigious Fox International Fellowship to spend 2016-17 at Yale. Isaac is following in the footsteps of previous CSSR PhD students who have won a Fox Fellowship at Yale, including Brendan Maughan-Brown, Colin Almeleh, Ed Grebe, Singumbe Muyeba, Duncan Pieterse and Gabby Kelly. Isaac's PhD is on child welfare regimes in Southern Africa. He will have completed his fieldwork (in four Southern African countries) by the time he goes to Yale, and will use the opportunity to write up his PhD. Isaac is a researcher on the LIWPR (Legislating and Implementing Welfare Policy Reforms) project. His analysis of Zimbabwean policy reforms under the coalition government (2009-13) - coauthored with Jeremy Seekings - is published as CSSR Working Paper 373.
