AAME is part of the Department of Politics and International Relations at Royal Holloway, University of London.
Its members carry out research and teach in their specialist areas of Africa, South Asia, China, Latin America and the Middle East. We foster a lively research culture, running a regular seminar series and an annual conference.
Our PhD community is a vital part of this. Our students work on topics from media and identity in Zimbabwe to social movements in Egypt and the politics of music in India. We welcome applications from potential students who wish to work on politics in AAME.
We contribute to teaching on the Politics and International Relations degrees at Royal Holloway, and we have just launched a new MA in The Politics of Development.
