People: Research Fellows
Justine M. Davis is an LSA Collegiate Fellow in the Department of Afroamerican and African Studies (DAAS) at the University of Michigan. She will be an Assistant Professor in DAAS and Political Science beginning in 2022. Davis’ research examines challenges to democratization efforts in post-conflict and weakly institutionalized contexts in Sub-Saharan Africa. Her current book project explores how civil war affects the ability of local civil society organizations to contribute to post-conflict democratization. Through a multi-methods research design, she leverages geographic variation in rebel takeover in Côte d’Ivoire to examine how war shapes local civil society and citizens.
