Case Study
Phatsi Mabophiwa
“Attaining a doctorate has been my long-term aspiration. My research explores what young people (aged 11-16 years) understand about their rights and responsibilities.

The best part of my research is that I get to work with children and young people - they possess a very sophisticated appreciation of matters that affect them. I absolutely love what I do!
