Moudwe Daga: Making the state in Chad
Moudwe's doctoral thesis explores identity and politics of recognition in the making of the state in Chad.
He looks specifically at how military interventions, in Mali and Nigeria, have provided an opportunity to the elites in Chad to reconceive their idea of statehood, and how they have engaged the population with that idea.
Prior to joining Royal Holloway, Moudwe was a teaching fellow at the University of Doba, a public research institution in southern Chad. His teachings covered the ideas of nationalism and communitarian identities in African politics.
He earned an MA in International Development from Clark University (Massachusetts) where he was a Fulbright student from 2012 to 2014, and a bachelor degree in Political Science at the Catholic University of Central Africa in Yaounde (Cameroon).
