Podcast Ep 09: Digital Democracy, Analogue Politics – Nanjala Nyabola

05 Jun 2019 0:00


In this episode of between the lines, Nanjala Nyabola, a Kenyan activist, political analyst and author, speaks about her fascinating book ‘Digital Democracy, Analogue Politics: How the Internet Era is Transforming Politics in Kenya’, about how the digital age and social media has impacted Kenyan politics, and the consequences for democracies across Africa, and beyond.

While the impact of the Digital Age on Western politics has been extensively debated, there is still little appreciation of how it has been felt in developing countries such as Kenya. Reframing digital democracy from the African perspective, Nanjala’s ground-breaking work opens up new ways of understanding the current global online era.

Interviewing Nanjala is IDS researcher Tony Roberts.
