Abstract:This volume presents the results of a research project on conflict in the Great Lakes region which arose from dissatisfaction with existing conflict analysis frameworks which dwelt mainly on root causes of conflicts and did not provide adequate explanations for the prolongation of conflicts in the Great Lakes region without focusing on agency. The volume contains chapters on Burundi (Charles Berahino), Democratic Republic of Congo (Roger Kibasomba & Thadee Barega Lombe), northern Kenya (Hussein A. Mahmoud), Sudan (Alfred Sebit Lokuji), Zanzibar (Mohammed A. Bakari), and northern Uganda (Paul Omach). In all the chapters, the authors reflect on how they conducted their research, analysed the data, arrived at conclusions and made recommendations on how to address obstacles to peace in their respective cases. A concluding chapter by Mwesiga Baregu summarizes the findings and offers recommendations for conflict resolution in the Great Lakes region. [ASC Leiden abstract]
