Iam a lecturer in the Faculty of Arts at Makerere University, Kampala, Uganda. I hold BA(Hons) in Political Science and MA (Human Rights) both from Makerere. I am also fairly fluent in French, with two certificates (C.E.F.P 1, C.E.F.P 2) from the Alliance Francaise in Paris, France.
For the last two and a half years, till September 2009, I have been doing a project on economic, social and cultural rights (ESCR) for Human Rights Network (HURINET),a national non-governmental organization in Uganda. I am interested in issues of development, trade justice, human rights, rule of law, good governace, climate change, third world debt,food crisis ,etc. I have travelled widely in East Africa for conerences and other advocacy initiatives on some of these issues. In 2008 I presented a paper at an FAO food summit in Rome on the role of Ugandan civil society in formulating legislation (Food & Nutrition Bill) in the country. I have also participated in other meetings in Geneva on the global food crisis and WTO-trade justice related issues.

Lecturer, Makerere University
How many years professional experience do you have ?
I hope all is well with you. I was wandering if you were able to get any information on my application. I was able to connect with another lecturer at Makerere and I hope that between the two of you I might get good news soon. Thans again for all of your help.
Thanks you so much for responding so quickly! It has been hard for me to get any information as I am in New York, so I would truly appreciate it. My full name is Eve Williams (Wilson). I was awarded a Rotary Ambassadorial Scholarship to study at Makerere. I applied to the Peace and Conflict Studies program but I was also very much interested in the Human Rights Program. However, I did not think I could apply to both.
I did receive confirmation that my application was received but at this time have no word to its status. According to my scholarship, I need to get my vaccinations, visa, and airplane ticket now, but am unable to do any of this since I do not have an Admission letter from the program.
Some other information you might need:
My birthdate is the 12th of December, 1985
I graduated from Antioch University in Ohio, USA in December 2006
I have a Bachelors Degree with 2 years as a Deans Scholar (you can only become a Dean's scholar after your 1st year and I finished the 4-yr program in 3 years), a Coretta Scott King Scholar, and several other awards.
Please let me know what you hear. I have been trying to travel to Africa, Uganda in particular, for several years but my work and studies have only taken me to Latin America and the Caribbean. Thank you for your help and support.
