Successful PhD defence by Getrude Isimon
'Understanding the complex inter-connections of civil war and communal violence: the case of Uganda'
On Friday 2 June, Getrude Isimon successfully defended her PhD thesis on 'Understanding the complex inter-connections of civil war and communal violence: the case of Uganda' in which she explores the interlinkages between civil war and communal violence.
Her research examines the complex interconnections between the civil war in northern Uganda and what is often termed communal violence in north eastern Uganda. The study examines the causes as well as the actors involved and how these conflicts changed course and direction, and what implications this has for the conceptualisation of these conflicts.
