Research

I have worked for more than a decade at the International Institute of Social Studies (ISS) at Erasmus Univeristy Rotterdam.  Before that I worked in UK universities, including Swansea and Exeter. Most recently I have co-edited a volume with Ugandan partners from Nsamizi Training Institute for Social Development and Refugee Law Project on Multi-sectoral approaches to Social Justice in East Africa.  More broadly, I have 2 overlapping areas of research. The first is post-genocide politics of peaceful change and refugee issues in the African Great Lakes region, and Rwanda in particular. The second is asylum and refugee policies and advocacy, including in Fortress Europe.
