Religionization of Politics in the Post-Conflict D.R. Congo: Local Faith-based Networks and Participatory State Transformation
My interdisciplinary research project investigates the transformative political role of local faith-based networks in the post-conflict Democratic Republic of Congo. With an emic, constructivist and prognostic approach, it seeks to examine the effects and prospects of their participation in poverty alleviation, peace-rebuilding and political change in this African failed state.
