Hi Mark,

Well, I didn't meet Sophie in Conakry (I think she was busy or out of town) but thanks for trying to make the connection. Anyways, I have been researching in Guinea on quite similar topics as you with respect to the Gambia: perception of conflicts and conflict solution - thus as soon as I have the time to do so I will try to write a paper out of it and send it to APCN... Right now I am researching for my MA thesis on deprived youth's political protests in Guinea and heading there again on March 6th. Are Sophie or other APCN people still there?

Hope to keep in touch!

Hello Mark,

Thanks so much for your message and sorry for the delay in getting back to you.

We would be very interested to look at ways in which we might collaborate.

I was in Uganda in August and am particularly interested to see that the Africa Peace & Conflict Network collaborates with a Ugandan peace organisation.
With the recent riots in Uganda, and build-up of tension there, it would be good to explore what might be done to ease the situation.

I'll also bear in mind your request for someone to assist with planning gender-sensitive humanitarian & conflict operations - might it be helpful if I ask around in our women-only online network?

Best
Chris

Nice to hear from you, Enyi.

Additional ways to become involved w/ APCN include *volunteering (send your CV to me w/a note indicating any skills in grantwriting, editing, or other pertinent areas),
*submitting manuscripts, multimedia pieces, briefings and/or book reviews for peer review and possible publication
etc.
Currently, we are completely open-access so you can download or view our publications etc. without restriction. Kevin DeJesus, who may be on this site, is spearheading our planning for a Feb. 2009 conference in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, USA on gender-sensitive humanitarian interventions. If you would like to participate or discuss that event, email him at "Kevin M. DeJesus"
Take care - hope to hear more from you.
