Research Interests
My research and teaching interests basically covers the intersection between Peace-building and Transitional Justice in Africa. In particular my work is centred on the politics of dealing with the past in post conflict recovering societies, transition management from Peace Accords to Democracy and Reconciliation. I am a firm believer of nonviolent resolution of conflicts and I am strongly convinced that peace does not happen by accident, but is rather invested into first before reaping the peace dividend. My community work involve facilitating engagement and capacitating communities to deal with their conflicts.
