His main interest is in the process of change which African societies are going through at the present time, and in recent years he has travelled in Ghana and Nigeria to observe the development of the new institutions in those countries.
In 2002 he was awarded the ‘Welcome Medal’ for an essay on the application of anthropology, and in 2003 he delivered the Lugard memorial Lecture. At present he holds the post of Professor of Applied Anthropology at the London School of Economics.
