In this week’s episode, we speak with Dr. Kathleen Klaus (@KathleenKlaus), Visiting Assistant Professor of Government at Wesleyan University. She earned her PhD at the University of Wisconsin and was recently a postdoctoral fellow at Northwestern University. Her research examines elections, violence, and land rights and she is currently finishing a book manuscript that draws from extensive research in Kenya.

We talk about the recent elections in Kenya, including Friday’s Supreme Court announcement annulling the presidential election. We also talk more broadly about elections and violence in democratizing contexts. Our conversation begins at 4:49.
