Dr. Rebecca Tapscott is a visiting fellow at the University of Edinburgh’s Politics and International Relations Department. She is also an Ambizione Research Fellow and lecturer at the Graduate Institute in Geneva (IHEID), as well as a Visiting Fellow at the Firoz Lalji Centre for Africa at the London School of Economics. Her research interests include political violence, security, authoritarian regimes; and gender. Her PhD is from the Fletcher School at Tufts University – where she worked with several of us from WPF. I had the great pleasure in Spring 2017 to co-teach my course on mass atrocities with her

In this interview with me, she discusses her new book, Arbitrary States: Social Control and Modern Authoritarianism in Museveni’s Uganda, that was recently by Oxford University Press.
