Moving to Cape Town, South Africa
13 July 2011
Atsufumi Yokoi | Tokyo, Japan

I was invited to join the African Centre for Cities (ACC) at the University of Cape Town (UCT; South Africa) as a Visiting Researcher from this October. This is a one-year non-tenure track appointment and part of my PhD studentship at the University of Tokyo. As a Research Affiliate of ACC, I am expected to get involved in a wide range of academic forums of ACC and to conduct research on various informal settings in African cities, working collaboratively with a diverse group of universities, research institutes, government sectors and NGOs from Japan and Africa.
