Abstract:The unrest in Burundi following President Nkurunziza's controversial re-election has put the country high on the international agenda, but research on the resurgence of turmoil is still in its infancy. A workshop held on 3 and 4 March 2016 in Freiburg, Germany, whose focus was Burundi after the 2015 elections, aimed to go beyond short-term accounts of the current unrests and extend past theorising in an attempt to address the current conflict. The contributions by Reyntjens, Vandeginste, and Van Acker in this issue are revised versions of their presentations in Freiburg. Contributions: Burundi after the 2015 elections: a conference report (Julia Grauvogel); Exploring the legacies of armed rebellion in Burundi's 'maquis par excellence' (Tomas Van Acker); Legal loopholes and the politics of executive term limits: insights from Burundi (Stef Vandeginste); Institutional engineering, management of ethnicity, and democratic failure in Burundi (Filip Reyntjens).
