Digging for environmental justice in the NAI library
Political ecologist Connor Cavanagh is studying the politics of land and environmental protection in Kenya. He divides his time between Oslo and Nairobi, but some of the most crucial sources for his research, sensitive documents from the Kenyan government, he found at the NAI Library in Uppsala.

South African archaeologist Natalie Swanepoel is a guest researcher at NAI during fall 2015. Her current project focuses on the Botshabelo Mission Station in Mpumalanga province, South Africa.
