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 […]

Peace in Casamance – Next Steps (Part 1)   3 comments

I know my blogging has been slim the last few months but to be honest my time here in Casamance has been pretty strict in terms of starting and conducting my research in the field. So, let me post a short piece for my audience. Also, I’ll note that this piece is a “Part 1” […]

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 […]

My Research in Casamance   4 comments

As most of you know I served in Peace Corps/The Gambia between 2008-2010. The Gambia is surrounded by Senegal (I call Senegal the ‘pac man’) with ocean at the west. I lived just south of The Gambian River far upcountry in the country’s bush-area, and was never too far from The Senegalese border at any […]

The ‘Angry’ Development Worker/ Conflict Management Professional   1 comment

I am taking time out from eating my lunch (peanut sauce with bits of chicken over rice) and from studying (how to negate commands in Pula Fuuta) to type this post. I hope it makes sense to those who know me, and for those who can relate to the context. E misaal (for example in […]

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 […]

Senegal’s Pre-Election Positives?   Leave a comment

Post was edited on 2/7. With the recent constitutional ruling that Wade can run for a third term, there has been turmoil, riots, injuries, and even deaths in Senegal. As West Africa’s most stable and democratic nation, it seems odd that we are hearing all of this negative attention from Senegal now. With the pending […]

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 […]

A Working Guide to the Expat Persona   5 comments

At the graduate school I attend, my classmates/colleagues and I are being training to be conflict management and/or development practitioners, or in other words program managers within conflict management and development. My American colleagues and I have a seemingly difficult time conveying what we are going to school for and what we hope to do […]
