Jane (Mango) Angar

Personal Statement

I am a Ph.D. student in the Department of Political Science at the University of California, Berkeley. As a comparativist my research interests are focused on electoral violence and disability politics.I explore the implications of electoral violence on political accountability, the effects of electoral violence on the long-term welfare of historically marginalized communities, and the effectiveness of institutional reforms intended to mitigate the occurrence of electoral violence with a regional focus in East Africa. Additionally, I am interested in examining the effects of the weaponization of sexual violence against women during political violence on the participation of women in politics as voters and as candidates. I  also explore topics on disability and state consolidation, disability and citizenship, and disability and economic marginalization in former British colonies.
