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 […]

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 […]

The Look   Leave a comment

After watching the video* from the recently decease Tim Hetherington, many emotions arose. The film captures, as Tom suggests and I quite agree with him, there is an interesting/odd mix of Western field practitioners living and working in developing areas and/or conflict environments. It is odd because we choose to be in that type of […]

Congress Does Not Care About Peace   Leave a comment

UPDATED Feb. 25th, 2010. Straight from the Alliance for Peacebuilding Dear AfP Members and Friends, I hate to admit we’ve been caught off guard, but we’ve been caught off guard. The new House of Representatives voted yesterday to cut funding for the US Institute for Peace to zero! That’s right, zero. There was no advance […]
