Africa Professorship

The professorship of Contemporary Politics and Societies in Africa at Freie Universität contributes an important comparative perspective to the study of African politics and societies in Berlin. A central aspect of SCRIPTS is the link between comparative approaches and regional studies when examining the role and current status of the liberal script in different parts of the world. The professorship completes the set of regions for the purpose of cross-regional comparisons and the study of transregional processes between localities in different regions of the Global South and the Global North. Furthermore, Africa is of special interest for many issues relevant to the Cluster’s research agenda, including migration, climate change, transnational terrorism, and Islamic fundamentalism.
