PhD Title: Youth and Post-war Resettlement in Northern Uganda

Research Interests: My main areas of research interest include the following: Internal displacement, policing, crime, children and youth.

Background: I am currently a Lecturer in the Department of Sociology in Makerere University’s School of Social Sciences. Previously, I worked as a volunteer with the Partnership for Community Safety which involved the Uganda Police Force, Uganda Prison Service and Makerere University’s department of Sociology (where it was housed). As a research I have been involved in a number of research projects and consultancies in Uganda covering child malnutrition, child rights, water, crime and agricultural related issues. I hold a Masters in Sociology from Makerere University with a dissertation on Perceptions about crime, community participation, the police and their implications for community policing in Uganda, a Post graduate Diploma in Project Planning and Management and a Bachelor of Arts (Social Sciences) from Makerere University.
