Prof Mthuli Ncube has co-authored a paper called 'How Elections are Impacted by Production, Economic Growth and Conflict' in International Game Theory Review (IGTR). The paper analyses the pre- and post-election processes as a two-period game between an incumbent and a challenger.

IGTR is a refereed quarterly journal published by World Scientific. It emphasizes rigorous analysis, and will offer up-to-date insights and perspectives through original research in game theory and its applications.
