PhD Title

Mediated Voices: Nation/State-Building, NGOs and Survivors of Sexual Violence in Postconflict Rwanda and Bosnia-Herzegovina

 

Doctoral Research

My research explores the post-conflict experiences of some women who experienced wartime sexual violence in Rwanda and Bosnia-Herzegovina. More precisely, I am exploring their need for social/ethnic belonging and analysing how some non-governmental organisations mediate the social reintegration of these women. 

Qualifications

MSc (Nationalism Studies), University of Edinburgh.

B.A. (Political Science and History) McGill University.
