Show Notes

"Breaking Bad: Understanding the Backlash against Democracy in Africa" is a collaborative project that takes a multi-method approach to studying democracy. In this episode, we speak with project members Lise Rakner (University of Bergen), Leonardo Arriola (University of California, Berkeley), and Nicolas van de Walle (Cornell University) about their upcoming edited volume and what we should know about the state of democracy in Africa.

In the news wrap, Rachel recommends a new book from Mariana Candido and talks about why Roe v. Wade matters to Africans.
