The annual December event for alumni and graduands of the Faculty of Economics and Management Sciences will be held on Friday, 8 December 2017.
The keynote address will be given by Mr JP Landman, a self-employed analyst on political-economic trends and visiting professor at the University of the Free State. His focus areas are trends in politics, economics, demography and social capital.
In September 2015 he was appointed by the President as a member of the National Planning Commission (NPC). The appointment is for a term of five years.
Among some of the unique research projects his consultancy has undertaken was the role of public institutions in battling corruption (quoted by the UN in a report on corruption), the interplay of demographics and economic growth, and an overview of trends around poverty alleviation in SA.
Mr Landman holds BA and LLB degrees from Stellenbosch University (1978), studied Economics and Development Economics at Unisa (1979 and 1980) and later at Harvard (1998 and 2005), and obtained an MPhil degree in Future Studies (cum laude) from SU (2003).
