Dr. John Idriss Lahai and Dr. Tanya Lyons are collaborating on an edited book collection and are inviting interested scholars to contribute a chapter. The forthcoming AFSAAP Conference in Dunedin, New Zealand will be a great opportunity to workshop these chapters, and run a few panels on emerging themes. Please see this “Call for Chapters” and contact the editors for further information.
This edited collection aims to expand on the discourses of insurgency, (rebel/state) governance and peacebuilding into an engagement with one or more of the following non-exclusive themes:
1) Unconventional armed/non-armed insurgency in Africa; 2) Rebel-State Governance Architecture and the political economy of civil wars; 3) the politics of insurgent environmentalism and the war-peace nexus; 4) armed insurgent groups and the neo-liberal peacebuilding agenda for the post-colonial state; 5) Population dynamics and insurgent groups’ patterns of warfare; 6) People’s power and agency in war/peace activism; 7) peace processes and the landscapes of non-violent peace activism in Africa; and 8) The role of marginal/minority groups in insurgent (violent/non-violent) movements and in peace processes;
We are particularly interested in chapters that explore these issues from an interdisciplinary (within a case study-specific) perspective that draws from social anthropology, political science and strategic studies, peace and conflict studies, memory and religious studies, visual culture and other disciplines in the humanities and the social sciences. Chapters that situates the post-colonial and neo-liberal discourses of insurgency, governance and peacebuilding within the geographies of space are also welcome.
