Join us for Professor Sten Hagberg’s knowledgeable and inspiring talk about a changing
Burkina Faso, as the country makes a break with its authoritarian past. The book 'Nothing will be as before': Anthropological perspectives on political practice and democratic culture in 'a new Burkina Faso'.

Nothing Will Be As Before is the result of ethnographic research on socio-political
transformations in Burkina Faso. With the popular insurrection in October 2014 that ousted President Blaise Compaoré from power, this country marks a break with its authoritarian past. Burkina Faso is engaged in democratic renewal, at the same time as political continuity is evident. More info here
