Research Project Manager
As a Research Associate, I am in charge of the organisation of scientific events as well as managing the research fellows network. I also coordinate and deal with the administration of several research projects.
Following a Master degree in Political Science curriculum, I worked for almost 3 years in development organizations in France, Morocco and Benin Republic. I mainly managed cooperation projects between non-state institutions on various topics as tax policies, administration management, urban planning and extra-curricular education programs.
Being a stakeholder in these North-South development and cooperation programs has made me reflect on the circulation of power, specifically with regard to public policies at local level, as well as the interaction between local governments and others governance levels. Following these experiences, I completed a Research Masters studying how local governments in Benin Republic implement and negotiate their fiscal authority day to day in the framed of international and national norms.
Following my graduation from the African Studies Master of Paris Pantheon-Sorbonne University and convinced that global issues have very specific local outcomes, I am eager to build on my work in the academic research field to analyse the way local communities can adapt to global crises and trends. I am especially interested on how social and political representations and narratives of economic growth and globalization have an impact on local social mobilization and adaptation in time of crises.
Therefore, I am currently looking to contribute to projects that analyse the production and implementation of environmental public policies as well as the emergence of social contestation on these issues in Nigeria.
