Busisiwe Radebe

Busisiwe Radebe is a PhD candidate at the University of Cape Town and Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, as part of the National Research Foundation’s Desmond Tutu split-site PhD scholarship programme. Her current research is focused on understanding the drivers of intra-racial inequality in South African townships.
