Biography

This paragraph is not available in English, therefore the Swedish version is shown.

PhD Candidate in Political Science at the Department of Government. My research interests lie, broadly speaking, within the field of post-conflict development and democratisation, with a current focus on rebel group to political party transformation, and the interplay of violence and politics in the aftermath of conflict.

My dissertation discusses how Renamo in Mozambique is currently existing in the border between political party and rebel movement, again 20 years since their transformation. It engages the issue from different angels, with an actor-centered perepective with the aim of understanding Renamos actions from the inside. The study is based on elite interviews, observations of parliament, and media statments. The study was conducted in Mozambique from 2015-2017, during the hight of the new conflict. It will result in a compilation thesis adressing Renamos constructed logic of violence, decentralisation as a key issue, and the role of elections in Renamos narratives of violence.
