The African Leadership Centre (ALC) is delighted to announce Dr Moses Tofa’s successful conferment of PhD in Politics and International Relations from the University of Johannesburg on March 20, 2019.
His thesis is titled "Interrogating the Characteristics, Challenges, and Trajectory of Opposition Party Politics in Zimbabwe: 1980-2013”. His study employs institutionalisation theory to examine endogenous and exogenous variables which eroded or enhanced the capability of opposition political parties to institutionalise and pose a formidable challenge to the incumbent Zimbabwe African National Union Patriotic Front (ZANU-PF).
Dr Tofa is ALC’s first Post-Doctoral Fellow and Alumnus of the Peace and Security Fellowship for African Scholars, 2010-11.
Dr. Tofa is currently based at the African Leadership Centre in Nairobi for his Post-Doctoral Fellowship role. He is conducting research projects under the ALC’s ten year research agenda on Peace, Society and the State in Africa. His current research focuses on elections and electoral politics, peacebuilding and transitional justice processes in Africa, and African agency in international relations. He is also coordinating the delivery of the ALC’s Peace, Security and Development module at the University of Nairobi’s Institute of Development Studies.
