Dr Sam Okyere

Senior Lecturer in Sociology, SPAIS, University of Bristol, United Kingdom



Sam Okyere is a socio-anthropologist and Senior Lecturer in Sociology at the School of Sociology, Politics and International Studies (SPAIS), University of Bristol. He is primarily interested in the linkages between rights, (un)freedom, globalisation, and the legacies of slave trade and colonisation, mainly but not exclusively in African contexts. Over the past decade, he has explored these issues through extensive research and publications on child labour, migration, artisanal mining, sex work, trafficking, and phenomena popularly labelled as ‘modern slavery’.
