South Sudan: When It Started (working piece)   Leave a comment

I has been too long since I have published anything on this blog. After grad school I didn’t really know what to write about. Post-graduation from Brandeis University I packed my belongings and moved to Nairobi to be closer to my (then) partner, who at the time was working in Somalia. While in Kenya it […]

Insights on Casamance   1 comment

I just got done conversing with a high-ranking Senegalese working for a respected agency here in Casamance about the region’s conflict as well as how to approach peacebuilding here. A few tidbits from our conversation*. There is legitimatized fear that the turmoil and instability in Mali may carry over into Casamance. (And if this turns […]

Why Pulaar?   Leave a comment

People may wonder why I choose to learn Pulaar, as opposed to French, for my research and latest stint abroad. It is a good question. I also got the same question from Senegalese. So, I hope this post can address the question and any concerns. In Senegal, the official language is French. However, Senegal also […]

Do No Harm, Peacebuilding, and Culture   2 comments

Below is a pending piece of the literature review for my Master’s Paper. Any thoughts or comments are appreciated. DNH has identified five categories of ‘peace capacities’ or connectors Anderson (1999, p. 24). They use the term ‘peace capacities’ in the text but I feel this term could also be the same as ‘conflict management […]

Senegal – Part 1   Leave a comment

To Whom That Will Read This, I told a few people that I would be keeping current on my blog to update the rest of the world of my status in Senegal. Forgive me as I left Boston on May 26th and got into Dakar, Senegal on May 27th – thus I am past due […]

Macky Sall and Casamance   Leave a comment

The long awaited run-off election in Senegal happened on 25 March 2012. Senegalese, West Africans, and Africanists from around the world held their breathe. And then, Mightly Allah had spoken and Sall marked victory. But we still held our breathe, as we awaited Wade’s response. At last, Wade did respond, and positively, as reports came […]

Does Guinea-Bissau’s President’s Death have Consequences in Casamance?   Leave a comment

As many of you read from various sources, Guinea-Bissau’s President Malam Bacai Sanha died on January 9th in Paris. As of late, Bissau has been recognized as as a cocaine and marijuana hub as well as one of many unstable countries in the West African region. What happens now is unclear for Bissau with regard […]

Advocacy toward the Global-North   1 comment

This post’s idea stemmed from a mass email sent from a well-intentioned classmate I had last academic year regarding awareness of contemporary slavery, which was compounded by the recent discussion of the short film Unwatchable as ‘badvocacy’. I will explain the parallels of both below. The email (mentioned above) gave information about an online survey […]

Casamance and U.S Citizens   Leave a comment

Below is a reply from the U.S. Embassy in Dakar regarding the Casamance region: The U.S. Embassy recommends that U.S. citizens avoid non-essential travel to the Casamance region west of the city of Kolda, except direct air travel to the Cap Skirring resort area or to the city of Ziguinchor. If travel is deemed essential, […]

Water Wars   Leave a comment

This past week I had the opportunity to hear Lotika Paintal of Water Centric speak about why water is such a huge issue in development. As a future development and conflict management practitioner, I quickly understood that water is/can be a source of conflict as well. All living creatures require water in order to survive, […]
