Patience kabamba commented on Vanessa Kulick's blog post Spotlight on the Democratic Republic of Congo

Hi Patience, you left a really helpful comment on a blog post I wrote a couple of years ago on the DRC. I am now editor of an online journal called openSecurity, which is currently undertaking work researching policing in South Africa. I wondered if you could recommend people working on this subject, whether social scientists or anthropologists - we are looking for multi-disciplinary perspectives. I would be really greatful if you could email my associate editor Hannah Schling (hannah.schling@opendemocracy.net) with any thoughts you have on this. Best wishes, Jo

Wow! This is quite impressive indeed. I am well vested with the Ford Family Program of Notre Dame. They did sponsor my visit to Notre Dame to attend the 3rd Human Development Conference that was held last winter. It indeed was an exciting experience having my paper presented at that international conference. Actually, Lacey had sometime back talked to me about you. What a coincidence! Are you in the fellowship with the Kroc Institute? If so, send my greetings to St Ville, Jill and Cathy-- staff members at Kroc. I will also very much appreciate to acquire your recent book on Heart of Darkness about the Congo. Finally, do not hesitate to send to me any interesting reading material (book, magazine, etc.) about our history and politics (especially Tomas Turner's Congo Wars) through Ford Family Office Uganda.

Looking forward to learning much from you.

With every best regard,

Dave
