Research

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.
