Peter Geschiere is Professor of Anthropology. Since 1971 he undertook historical-anthropological field-work in various parts of Cameroon and elsewhere in West Africa. He published extensively on issues of citizenship, belonging and exclusion. Another central topic in his work is the relation between witchcraft and politics in Africa and elsewhere.
