Jacob Udo-Udo Jacob

Visiting International Scholar in International Studies & Political Science, Dickinson College

My teaching and research interest is located at the intersection between communications, peacebuilding, and conflicts in contemporary society, with particular reference to Nigeria (and the broader Lake Chad region), Somalia, and the Democratic Republic of Congo. I am particularly interested in how communication interventions are localized, encountered and contested in violently divided societies. The applied area of my work involves developing and deploying contextually relevant strategic communication solutions to local and national crises and working with civil society and social movement organizations to achieve social and cultural change. I earned my PhD in Communication Studies (with a focus on Strategic Communications) at the Institute of Communication Studies, University of Leeds, United Kingdom.
