Graduate Research Intern (2018)
Nhlanhla Zulu was a graduate research intern under the ESEPARC/UNDP Graduate Research Programme from November 2017 to November 2018. His research interests were in the area of inequality and poverty reduction, with a particular focus on Eswatini. While on internship, he conducted a study that focused on the inequality of opportunities in Eswatini’s education system.
In high school, Nhlanhla was actively involved with the United Nations Refugee Agency and the Ministry of Home Affairs where he supervised a team that conducted a nationwide registration exercise of refugees in the country, which sparked his interest in issues of inequality and looking into ways to possibly address this problem. Prior to joining ESEPARC, he worked at Standard Bank as an EMV agent. He holds a Bachelor of Science in Economics and Mathematics from the University of Witwatersrand.
