My name is Moses Khisa and this is my online home! Here, you'll learn more about me and my work.

Who I am...

I am a national of the Republic of Uganda, mostly a free thinking and fair-minded person who believes in a free and just world (I adore Michael Sandel!), writer (albeit not prolific!), student of African politics (never felt I've known enough about the continent), great admirer of the virtue of humility (always trying to embrace it), been around the world quite a bit (lived in at least three different continents for long spells), and so much more.

What I do...

I study and teach politics and political development with a focus on contemporary Africa. I got my PhD in Political Science at Northwestern University, Evanston/Chicago-USA in June 2016. I'm currently a Lecturer of Political Science at Northwestern University, teaching both introductory-level and upper-level undergraduate classes.


I'm a student of politics and not a politician! So, I've little interest, if any, in active politics. However, since I was a little boy in secondary school, I've always had a keen interest in global current affairs but also local sociopolitical developments. Thus, since April 2013, I've been writing a Friday current affairs OpEd for The Observer newspaper, Kampala, Uganda's most incisive and informative national newspaper. I also co-founded a political think-tank, with senior colleagues at Makerere University, Kampala, which seeks to provide intellectual input to Ugandan politics. In addition to my limited political activism, I am also involved in community engagement as an active member of the Ugandan Community in Greater Chicago and as Vice President for the North America Masaba Cultural Association
