We speak to Asanda Benya (University of Cape Town, South Africa) and Ben Radley (University of Bath, UK) and discuss the political economy of mining in South Africa and the Democratic Republic of the Congo, as well as their research experience. Join us to learn more about the evolution of the mining sector, working conditions inside the mines, policy recommendations and much more.
The Hierarchies of Development podcast offers long format interviews focusing on enduring global inequalities. Conversations focus on contemporary research projects by critical scholars from across the world that help us understand how and why structural hierarchies persist.
This podcast is a joint production between King’s College, London, the European Association for Development Research and Training Institutes (EADI) and the Developing Economics blog.
