Afronomicslaw.org is delighted to welcome Dr. Chris Nshimbi as a Contributing Editor. Dr. Chris Nshimbi is the Director and Department of Science and Technology/National Research Foundation Research Fellow in GovInn at the University of Pretoria. He joined GovInn in 2012. Chris works in all of GovInn’s four axes with a particular focus on Trans-boundary Governance. His current research focuses on migration, borders, regional integration, the informal economy and water resources management. Afronomicslaw is delighted to have him as a contributing editor because he is undoubtedly the leading scholar studying and publishing the leading scholarly and policy analysis in the area of cross-border trade and the informal economy as they intersect with migration, gender, and water resources management.

His opinion pieces are occasionally published on THE CONVERSATION, OpenDemocracy and other media outlets.
