Peter Jacobs lectures Development Economics at the University of the Western Cape (UWC) in South Africa. Peter participated in the 2004 Cambridge Advanced Programme on Rethinking Development Economics. Although his research focus is on rural development and the political economy of agrarian change, he also has a keen interest in methodology in development theory, the economics of privatization, poverty and inequality. With his colleagues at the Programme for Land and Agrarian Studies (PLAAS) at UWC he completed an independent review of aspects of South Africa?s land reform policies. He works closely with non-governmental organizations and social movements in South Africa?s agrarian reform sector.

Focus: Agriculture, Development, Poverty, Africa
