Domain of Elite Power


Swiss Embassy, Abidjan, Ivory Coast

About Political Power

The political domain looks at state-based or state-focused elites including international techno/bureaucrats, politicians, political parties, civil society actors, and state bureaucracy. This domain investigates shifting patterns of domestic and international elite influence in governance, policymaking, and regime change across the continent, the role of countervailing or oppositional elites often situated in civil society and social movements, as well as the growing influence and prominence of women in formal office.
