The Religion-Politics Nexus in the Contemporary D.R. Congo: Re-Imagining Local Christian Participation in 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 political transformation in this African failed state.
