Research Project


My PhD project is a time series cross – sectional studies focusing on the mobilization of violent youth by parties and party leaders in elections and electoral violence in Africa from 1990. I seek to explain variation across space in the nature and intensity of violent youth activities in African countries and as well as look at how the networks of violent youth, political parties and party leaders are created and sustained. The study utilizes greed – grievances and the selective violence theories to build a theoretical framework whilst adopting a mixed research design approach.
