We begin this week’s episode with a conversation about elections slated for 2019, and important developments in the elections in the Democratic Republic of Congo. We also talk about current protests in Senegal and Sudan, which suits our conversation with this week’s guest, Lisa Mueller, an assistant professor of political science at Macalester College in Saint Paul Minnesota. Lisa is the author of a new book published by Cambridge University Press: Political Protest in Contemporary Africa. Kim spoke with her at the annual meeting of the African Studies Association in Atlanta, Georgia in November 2018. Her segment begins at 8:32.
