Featured member - Neesha Shepherd
Neesha Shepherd is an MA student currently researching a thesis on mining industrialization in central Africa. She is particularly interested in patterns of hybrid-governance in and around mining concessions in eastern DRC, and she would like to look at the social impacts of the industrialization process of a sector that she believes contributes to governance in resource rich and socially and politically unstable regions where there is little infrastructure and a complex environment. Neesha is also looking towards a career in the SCR and conflict sensitivity field in extractives.
