Ahmed Bangura
PhD student


After my undergraduate degree in 2002, I worked briefly for the Truth and Reconciliation Commission in Freetown, Sierra Leone for three months before travelling to pursue further studies at the University of Bradford as a Macro Economist. But the problems of natural resources became apparently known to me during my reflection of the war in Sierra Leone which was not fought for diamonds but, with diamonds.  I decided to become an environmental/ecological activist. In an attempt to fulfill this dream, I had my Masters degree in Ecological economics in 2006, and continued to do my research on issues relating to power, natural resources and the sustainable communities in Sierra Leone.


BSc in Education (Economics) (Njala University/University of Sierra Leone);
MSc in Economic Policy for Developing and Transition Economies (University of Bradford);
MA in Ecological Economics (University of Leeds).
