Alejandra Mahiques Nuñez

After finishing the Research Masters African Studies at Leiden Univeristy, I began pursuing my PhD at the Autonomous University of Madrid. My research focuses on the socio-political interactions between Spain and Equatorial Guinea under Francisco Macías regime between 1969-1979. As a journalist, I have special interest in the role of the media as watchdogs for human rights in new-born democracies and as platforms for civic driven change.
