Short Bio:

Diana is a doctoral researcher in political science on the project “Multiplicity in Decision-Making of Africa’s Interacting Markets: The Functioning of Community Law, the Role of Market Participants and the Power of Regional Judges” (MuDAIMa) within the Africa Multiple Cluster of Excellence at the University of Bayreuth. She joins the team after completion of a Master’s in Development Studies and a B.A. in Culture and Society of Africa at the same university. Interested in issues pertaining to development politics, her M.A. thesis dissertation explored how the prioritisation of private business as a means for development has received renewed interest in Germany’s Africa policy. In particular, she interrogated the shift to “equal partnership” and what this entails for the relevant actors who engage in development negotiations in practice. Prior to this, she worked as a research assistant for Prof. Uli Beisel on two research projects: Translating Global Health Technologies and Trust in medicine after the EVD epidemic. She also served as an editorial assistant at Mattering Press, Manchester U.K. Additionally, Diana holds a BSc (Maths) from Makerere University.

PhD Project:

Diana is interested in the link between judicial decision-making and processes of regional integration in Africa. Her research project conceptualises judges on regional courts as actors, with agency, who operate within existing configurations of power. Therefore, it adopts a relational approach to investigate how the judges’ diverse relational attributes potentially shape and influence their decision-making, and in turn, how this impacts regional integration processes. Specifically, it examines how regional court judges understand their role in regional integration, probes into what shapes this understanding and traces the judicial networks that matter in advancing regional integration. Possible constraints to judicial power and individual interests that tend to deter regionalisation will also be investigated. The study employs semi-structured interviews to probe judicial relations and Social Network Analysis to analyse the structural properties of these networks.
