About Me

My PhD project analyzes durable resolution of communal conflict, and the role of the state and non-state actors in resolving such conflicts, focusing on cases in Africa. I investigate the dynamics between local conflict resolution processes and central government strategies, employing both qualitative and quantitative methods. Case studies focus on communal conflicts in Kenya.
