Elizabeth (Eliza) Ngutuku

Eliza Ngutuku is the winner of the 2022 Research Prize for her dissertation 'Rhizomatic Cartographies of Children’s Lived Experience of Poverty and Vulnerability in Siaya, Kenya'

The Research Prize is awarded by the Praemium Erasmianum Foundation every year to academic researchers who have written a PhD dissertation of outstanding quality. Selected from 39 nominations, Eliza's thesis looked into children’s complex lived experience in Kenya. It was based on a one-year ethnographic research in Siaya, a county characterized by some of the lowest indicators of child well-being in Kenya.

The awarding ceremony will take place later this year at the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW) in Amsterdam.
