About Dr Josine Uwilingiye

I am a Senior Lecturer at the School of Economics at the University of Johannesburg. I hold a Bcom Honours in Economics, Mcom in Econometrics and PhD in Economics from the University of Pretoria. With 12 years teaching experience for undergraduate and postgraduate modules and more than 11 years involvement in academic research it is fair to say I am passionate about teaching – I am also supervising Honours projects, Master’s dissertations, and a PhD thesis.

My research expertise include, Macroeconomics, Monetary policy, Fiscal policy, International Economics and Economic modelling and I have published work in reputable national and international Journals since 2008.

I live by Mahatma Gandhi’s quote: “ You may never know what results come of your action, but if you do nothing there will be no result.”
