Research at the BIEA

Current Research Themes

As part of our Strategic Plan, we have made some changes to our research themes. We now have six major themes with accompanying questions. Through consultation with a range of partners across eastern Africa, in the UK and more widely, BIEA’s research committee has identified the following set of research themes. These will guide BIEA’s work in building research partnerships and collaborations across the region.

  1. Epidemics Pandemics and epizootics
  2. Citizens and science
  3. Knowing environments
  4. Technologies of politics
  5. Urban lives
