Topic: African Politics, Economy and Conflict

Thesis timeframe: 2018-2021
Application deadline: 21 May 2021


There are vast gaps in the histories of African countries which can be attempted addressed using traditional historiographical methods such as archival research and collection of oral sources. But, African studies are often multi-disciplinary and there are also opportunities for using new and innovative methods inspired by the social sciences. Prospective master topics on the history of African states, civil-military relations and the history of conflicts and peace processes is particularly welcome.

The project is thematically connected to the Research Council of Norway project 'The Impact of Security Force Assistance on State Fragility' and to the PRIO Centre on Culture and Violent Conflict.
