Arnold Chamunogwa

Postdoctoral Fellow

Biography

Dr Arnold Chamunogwa holds a DPhil in International Development from the University of Oxford, and his thesis focused on explaining the remaking and transformations of order and authority during the fast track land reform in Zimbabwe. Arnold’s post-doctoral research will focus on interrogating how state bureaucratic institutions are reconfigured during land reforms, in ways that shape the trajectories of agrarian change. Broadly, his research interests are on the configurations of power and authority, as well as state-society relations, at the margins of post-colonial states in Africa, and how they shape the dynamics of agrarian change and rural transformations. He also holds a Master of Arts in Governance and Development from the Institute of Development Studies, University of Sussex in the United Kingdom, a post-graduate diploma in Governance, Public Policy and Democratization from the International Institute of Social Studies, in the Netherlands, and a BSc (Hons) in Agricultural Economics from the University of Zimbabwe.
