European Politics Research Group
IFW D 41.2
Densua joined the European Politics Group in January 2017 as a visiting doctoral student. She is a DPhil candidate in International Relations at the University of Oxford. Densua gained her Bachelors degree in Politics at the University of Nottingham. She later completed a Masters in International Relations, which was jointly awarded by the University of Bremen and Jacobs University Bremen, Germany.
Her research seeks to explain the proliferation of parliaments in regional intergovernmental organisations in the past 20-30 years. In pursuit of answers to her research question, she has spent nearly eight months gathering original archived materials and interviewing international bureaucrats across the African continent.
More broadly, her interests include the institutional design of international organisations and how this determines their responsiveness to the states and non-state actors they serve. She has a particular fascination for regional integration in Africa.
