Bio

Dr. Jacob Udo-Udo Jacob is a Visiting International Scholar in International Studies at Dickinson College. He is also the Academic Director of the Dickinson College Bridge Program—a college-preparation initiative that provides educational opportunity to young people from regions of the world experiencing conflict and natural disasters for whom higher education would otherwise be impossible.

His teaching and research interest is located at the intersection between communications, peace, and conflict in contemporary society with particular reference to Nigeria and the broader Lake Chad region, Somalia and the Democratic Republic of Congo. Jacob is particularly interested in how international communication interventions (including counter-narrative campaigns) are localized, encountered and contested in extremist and violently divided societies.
