This talk is open to the public as part of the Cambridge Festival of Ideas. It may be podcast.

As alternatives to imperial rule, federations involved different ways of thinking about sovereignty, territoriality and political economy. The federal idea in the later 1940s and 1950s was used by imperial powers to stave off decolonisation, but it was also supported by local political actors. This paper will take the mooted east African federation as its case study.
