Research and Consultancy

Dr Nalwanga is a critical theorist with prime interests in governance activities and their relationship to social theories, such as social capital.

Dr Nalwanga's PhD topic was Early Warning Systems for Banking Crisis with the Inclusion of Corporate Governance. The central aim of this study was to understand how social capital influences the behaviours of boards of directors, in the governance of Ugandan banks. In addressing this, the research demonstrates how directors build, develop, and use social capital. Additionally, the research discusses how social capital affects directors behaviours, which may ultimately influence the governance of Ugandan banks.
