Lisa-Marie Selvik is a PhD Candidate at the Department of Comparative Politics. Her research interests cover civil society advocacy and democratic rights, and she is part of the research project ‘Breaking BAD: Understanding the Backlash Against Democracy in Africa‘. 

Lisa-Marie's PhD thesis is titled "The Politics of Liberal Rights in Africa. Regulating and legislating freedom of association, expression, and information". The project in particular analyses how civil society actors attempt to advance democratic rights in African democracies, by focusing on the policy-issue of ‘citizen’s right to information’. 

Lisa-Marie holds a Master’s degree in Political science and a Bachelor’s degree in International relations from the University of Oslo. As a research assistant at CMI (2016-2017), Selvik conducted a study on the Truth and Justice commission in Haiti (1994-1996) through the LawTransform project ‘Beyond Words: Implementing Latin American Truth Commission Recommendations‘, and worked on anti-corruption and fraud through the U4 Anti-Corruption Unit.
