Professor Keith Hart BA PhD

My principal research has been on Africa and the African diaspora. I have also taught at numerous universities on both sides of the Atlantic, but for the longest period at Cambridge. I have contributed the concept of the informal economy to development studies and have worked as a journalist and consultant. One recurrent theme of my work has been movement and identity. I am the author of 'Money in an Unequal World' (2001).
