Sue Onslow's Biography

Dr. Sue Onslow is Co-Head of the Africa International Affairs programme at LSE IDEAS, which focuses on how the recent past in Africa has a particular importance, and relevance, for contemporary domestic politics and economies, inter-state relations, and the continent’s relationship with the wider world. She is also Administrator for the Executive Masters programme International Strategy and Diplomacy.

Before joining LSE IDEAS, she was a Visiting Lecturer in the Department of War Studies at King’s College, London, and in the Department for International Development at the LSE, and a Research Fellow at the University of the West of England. She is also currently a guest lecturer in the International History Department at the LSE, and is on the Editorial Board of the Cold War History journal. She is a member of Chatham House.

Sue is a leading British oral-history historian, and recently completed a £240,000 two-year AHRC-funded interview programme on the Rhodesia UDI era, as the Principal Investigator and lead interviewer. She has published extensively on post-war British foreign policy, South Africa, Rhodesia/Zimbabwe and the Cold War in the region.

Among Sue’s more recent publications is Cold War in Southern Africa (2009), an edited volume which highlights the importance of the global ideological environment on the perceptions and consequent behaviour of the white minority regimes, Black Nationalist movements, and the newly independent African nationalist governments.
