PhD title: Traditional chiefs and State Agents in the Ghana-Togo Borderlands: who are the gatekeepers?
Supervisor: Dr Kate Skinner and Dr Maxim Bolt
PhD African Studies and Anthropology


Borderlands in Africa are areas fostering mobility and cross-border trade despite state borders. My research focuses on the relationship between official and traditional authorities in African borderlands, and more particularly in the Ghana-Togo borderlands. I am interested in looking at how this relationship may impact on mobility across the border.
