About Stefan Andreasson

My research background is in comparative politics and southern African politics, with a long standing interest in international political economy and the history of political thought in terms of how these fields of study bear on our understanding of political transitions, development, democratisation and the evolving nature of the postcolonial world.
My research has increasingly become focussed on Africa's changing role in the global economy, in particular on Africa's energy (oil and gas) markets in the context of the competition between US and UK companies and those of the emerging powers. Another area of recent research concerns comparative and theoretical aspects of Anglo-American conservatism and its applicability to the study of postcolonial politics.
