My research interests encompass several different aspects of Southern African history and politics, from 1945 to the present day. My main focus is on African liberation movements, decolonisation, and post-colonial governance. I have conducted research in a number of areas including: the activities of national liberation movements such as the ANC and MPLA (Angola); the start of the Angolan Civil War (1974-1976); the influence of the Cold War and the interventions of the superpowers in the region; apartheid South Africa’s projection of military and political power in Southern Africa; the process of decolonisation and the transition to democracy, particularly in South Africa; and the global foreign policy interactions of South Africa led by the ANC government.
