Dr Sonja Theron - Joint Post-Doctoral Appointment - ALC and University of Pretoria

Dr. Sonja Theron

The African Leadership Centre (ALC) is proud to announce that Dr. Sonja Theron has been appointed as the first Joint Post-Doctoral Fellow between the University of Pretoria (UP) and the African Leadership Centre, King's College London.

Over the past few years, the partnership between the African Leadership Centre, King's College London and the Department of Political Sciences, University of Pretoria, has been growing in exciting ways. The partnership includes the launch of a Joint PhD programme in Leadership and Security Studies (the first students on that program commenced their studies in January 2019), as well as joint doctoral workshops and various other collaborative projects.

During her time at both institutions Sonja will be conducting research on Nationhood, Statehood and Conflict in South Sudan while also assisting with the continued growth of the ALC-King's and UP partnership. Sonja is an Alumna of the ALC Peace and Security Fellowship for African Scholars program and we are very pleased to have her continue working on furthering and strengthening this innovative and exciting partnership.
