Ep88. A talk with Nic Cheeseman about his latest book, Uganda, and much more

On this week’s news update, Kim and Rachel discuss Nigeria’s first Coronavirus patient, the downward trend of Ebola, and elections in Cote d’Ivoire.

At the African Studies Association Annual Meeting in Boston this past fall, Kim met with Nic Cheeseman (@Fromagehomme) to discuss his latest book and other topics, such as presidential succession in Uganda. Nic is a professor of democracy and international development at the University of Birmingham, and he was the former African Studies Centre Director for Oxford University.

He specializes in elections and democracy, doing field work in Ethiopia, Kenya, and Ghana, just to name a few. A frequent commentator on global issues regarding Africa, Nic’s words have appeared in Foreign Policy, the New York Times, and many other renowned publications.

  1. Thank you for the Book about Uganda.. I am beginning my course in September on Long Distance and I would kindly like to read the book. I have included your book Institutions and Democracy in Africa in the Publications as I am applying for the Commonwealth scholarship.
