New AN column

ASAP is pleased to announce the publication of Dr. Numvi Gwaibi’s column entitled “Between Tradition and Modernity: Politics and Policy in Cameroon” in Anthropology News. The piece analyzes how the process of political decentralization transformed electoral dynamics, with particular attention on the changing role of traditional leadership in formal politics. Underscoring how networks of political affiliation and patronage have been transformed rather than undermined by political decentralization, the column offers a critical perspective towards the normative conceptions that drive mainstream analyses of African states and political dynamics.
