The DiA Team

Nic Cheeseman, Co-Editor

Nic Cheeseman used to be one of those people who never left Oxford, but then departed to Birmingham in search of new restaurants and heavy rock. He mainly talks about democracy and elections in Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe but occasionally strays further afield when he is feeling lucky. A former editor of African Affairs, he is sometimes accused of being a political scientist. More info here.


Obert Hodzi, Co-Editor

When he is not telling tales of his travels, or arguing about politics and governance in Africa, he is researching Africa’s relations with the Dragon of the East at the University of Helsinki. When there is still time left, Obert can be found walking in the forests of Helsinki wondering when Africa will truly rise! More info here.
