Extralegal Groups in Post-conflict Liberia: How Trade Makes the Modern State
Christine Cheng, King's College London, UK


hosted by Professor Nina Hall




Christine Cheng is Lecturer in War Studies at King's College London.

Her research on post-conflict transitions sits at the intersection of international relations and comparative politics (with a focus on the politics of West Africa). Dr Cheng is the co-editor of Corruption and Post-Conflict Peacebuilding: Selling the Peace? (with Dominik Zaum). Her recent book Extralegal groups in Post-conflict Liberia: How Trade Makes the Modern State (2018 Oxford University Press) explores how ex-combatants affected statebuilding processes after the end of civil war in Liberia.
br> Cheng is Course Director for the MA in Conflict, Security, and Development (CSD) and is affiliated with King's Centre for Politics, Philosophy, and Law, and King's Gender Studies.

Cheng holds a DPhil from Oxford (Nuffield College) and an MPA from Princeton University (Woodrow Wilson School). Previously, she was the Bennett Boskey Fellow in Politics at Exeter College, University of Oxford. In 2009, she was the Cadieux-Léger Fellow at Canada's Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade. Cheng has an undergraduate degree in systems design engineering (BASc) from the University of Waterloo. She has worked for the UN Commission on Human Security, the World Bank's Gender Group, Environment Canada, and the Wildlife Conservation Society.
