I am Professor of Political Science in the IPPE programme at University West. My research interests focus mostly on local government and democracy, with a past focus on participation and citizenship in the urban South and South Africa in particular. My most recent book is Democracy Disconnected: Participation and Governance in a City of the South, co-written with Professor Anciano and published by Routledge (2019).
I am currently interested in the significance of segregation and place in the city for issues of local governance and citizenship in Sweden.
I teach mostly research methodology in the undergraduate and Masters IPPE and WIL programme.
