My current research interests concentrate on five main areas:
1. Economic, Political and Social Transformations in Sub-Saharan Africa
Economic, political and social transformations in Sub-Saharan Africa is the first strand of my research activities. The countries under investigation include: Angola, Botswana, Burundi, Cote d’Ivoire, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Kenya, Mali, Mozambique, Namibia, Nigeria, Rwanda, Senegal, Somalia, South Africa, Tanzania and Uganda. Here, I am interested in the interaction between development economics, social protection policies and democratization. I have recently completed to write a single-author volume for Palgrave Macmillan entitled: 'Permanent Emergency Welfare Regimes in Sub-Saharan Africa. The Exclusive Origins of Dictatorship and Democracy'. It is scheduled to be published in March 2013. Pre-order available here.
2. Economic, Political and Social Transformations in the Middle and North Africa (MENA)
Economic, political and social transformations in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) is the second strand of my research activities. The countries under scrutiny involve: Algeria, Bahrain, Egypt, Iran, Jordan, Kuwait, Libya, Morocco, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Tunisia and Yemen. Here, my primary attention is given to the reforms of the systems of social protection and the repercussions for the process of modernization, democratization and consolidation of democratic institutions.
