The DiA Team

Nic CheesemanNic Cheeseman, Co-Editor

Nic Cheeseman is one of those people who never left Oxford. Thankfully, the University gave him a job to keep him out of trouble. He mainly talks about Kenya and Zambia but occasionally strays further afield when he is feeling lucky. Knowing that its always more fun reading someone else’s work than your own, Nic also edits African Affairs. He is sometimes accused of being a political scientist.

The common-or-garden SJ is usually found loitering around the Centre of African Studies at the University of Edinburgh, lecturing on international development and researching (in)security in South Africa. When she escapes Edinburgh, she can often be spotted running, climbing and (more frequently) falling over in the Peak District.

    In my opinion, this is the dream team that will come up with tailored democratic solution for Africa’s political mayhem.

    This is an excellent initiative and platform for young scholars to be nurtured in publishing on Democracy in Africa. I look forward to writing an article soon on Kenya.

    This, in my opinion, is an incredible platform for budding scholars interested on matters Governance, Democracy, Politics among others. I have followed Nic since my old undergraduate days. Looking forward to partnering with DiA in my Doctoral studies. God bless DiA and Team.
