Oumar Ba, PhD
I recently graduated from the Department of Political Science at the University of Florida. My dissertation, titled “Outsourcing Justice: Africa and the Politics of the International Criminal Court,” explores the causes and the mechanisms of perversion of international legal norms.
This fall, I will join the faculty of Morehouse College as an assistant professor of political science.
I have previously obtained a M.A in Political Science from the University of Florida, a M.A in Political Science from Ohio University, and a M.A in International Affairs from Ohio University. I have earned my B.A in International Studies from The Ohio State University and a B.A in Geography from the Universite Cheikh Anta Diop, in Dakar, Senegal.
I have been featured and provided political commentary to Al Jazeera English, Deutsche Welle, RFI English, and Quartz Africa. I’m also a Contributing Editor to Africa Is A Country
