Dr Azza Mustafa Mohamed Ahmed

In the context of the continuing revolution in Sudan the lecture will provide a timely consideration of the country’s traditional political movements and their responses to the challenges of modern liberal discourses emerging from youth movements and civil society organizations and to those social and political movements now active in the marginalised peripheries of the country.


The subject of the lecture may change, in response to ongoing events.
