His Research focuses on public policies of higher education and the social economy of three social groups; migrants, youth and women, particularly in the African Region. Given the human and demographic capitals they represent, he seeks to analyze the current norms that hamper the progress and livelihood of women, youth and migrants, as social groups, as well as generating evidence-based recommendations that could inform national and regional policies, providing comparable data across borders on key African countries, while addressing the causes of entrenched marginalization.
