Professor of History, Durham University

Justin Willis' work has been largely concerned with identity, authority and social change in eastern Africa stretching back over the last two hundred years. Much of his recent work has focused on Sudan and the Kenya coast. His current research is primarily concerned with the history of elections, and he is working with colleagues from Warwick and Oxford on a major ESRC-funded project, ‘The impact of elections: voting, political behaviour and democracy in sub-Saharan African’.
