  • Mary Kinyanjui’s book, “Women in the informal economy in urban Africa: from the margins to the centre”, contributes to literature on the urban informal economy in Africa with the important reminder that, while much of economic policymaking on the continent assumes the formal economy as the norm, the reality is a ‘hybrid economy’ (Cities Alliance, 2016) within which formal and informal workers, activities, and institutions intersect (Chen, 2005; Meagher, 2013). Specifically, Kinyanjui adds to the relatively sparse set of empirical studies that examines the interaction of the informal economy with formal institutions, systems and processes around the planning and use of urban space in Africa and that, further, demonstrates the impact of these relationships on women’s livelihoods (see Adaawen & Jørgensen, 2012; Anyidoho & Steel, 2016; Ojong, 2011 Roever, 2014).
