El 14 de febrero de 2020 se confirmó el primer caso de COVID-19 en el continente africano. En el anterior Informe África señalábamos que, aunque era necesaria una mayor perspectiva para poder comprender los efectos de la pandemia en los procesos políticos, económicos y sociales del continente, esta no supondría una ruptura clara entre un periodo pr...

On February 14th, 2020, the first case of COVID-19 on the African continent was confirmed. Last year’s 2020 Africa Report maintained that although a greater perspective was necessary to understand the pandemic’s effect on Africa’s political, economic and social processes, it wouldn’t represent a clear break between a pre-pandemic and a post-pandemi...
Article
This article explores how European Union (EU) peacebuilding is being reconfigured. Whereas the EU was once a bulwark of liberal peacebuilding, promoting a rule of law–based international order, it is now downplaying the goal of good governance and placing military capacity as central for international peace and security. Several works have analysed...
Chapter
The security-development nexus has served as an organising principle to the EU to achieve its fundamental norm of promoting sustainable peace and development. This principle implies that security is not possible without development and vice versa. While the security-development nexus has always had a tendency to place a greater accent on security t...
Article
Full-text available
The article explores how stabilisation missions reproduce the patterns that constituted colonial states. Following African historiography, the article argues that stabilisation’s militarised approach to neutralising resistance, its racialisation of targets and its aim to constitute and reform state authority evoke how colonial states were forged by...
Article
The strategies Kabila adopted to avoid stepping down at the end of his term in December 2016 inadvertently consolidated this new democratic wave.
Article
Full-text available
Attention to everyday forms of resistance in the liberal peace debates has provided a more sophisticated critique of peacebuilding but the concept of resistance remains limited. The paper argues that this is because leading approaches to resistance coming out the hybridity literature lack an account of class and privilege. These approaches have don...
Chapter
The inseparable relation between how Africa is known and what actions, policies, and discourses are mobilized around such knowledge has unleashed a series of critical interventions and alternatives. This volume offers guidance to maintain such critique alive and contributes to knowing African politics in more sober ways while destabilizing the very...
Chapter
This chapter critically examines how armed conflict in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) has been accounted for. It suggests that despite the shift in thinking about the causes of the conflict from a focus on resources to that of land and identity, these accounts reproduce problematic tropes, characteristic of dominant renditions of Africa...
Book
This innovative book responds to an existing demand for taking Africa out of a place of exception and marginality, and placing it at the center of international relations and world politics. Bringing together a number of scholars from various disciplinary backgrounds to stage a critical intervention into the problematic ways Africa is accounted for...

Book
The book explores everyday forms of resistance in the context of peacebuilding, whose ethos is the reconstruction of state authority. It locates resistance in the experience of war and state-making, analysing discourses, violence and survival mechanisms as quotidian acts that attempt to challenge or mitigate such experience. The aim is to not only...
Article
This is a review article of two books that respond to convergences and turning points in how societies undergoing peacebuilding processes respond and engage with such processes. The two books demonstrate that these interventions are not an overpowering and coherent strategy, and even less so a practice. They suffer constraints and blowbacks in such...
Thesis
Full-text available
The thesis explores everyday resistance in post-conflict statebuilding. Despite the turn in peace and conflict studies to study everyday forms of resistance, the concept and the account of its practices remain limited. In addressing these limitations, the thesis develops an alternative account of both resistance and post-conflict statebuilding. Fol...
Article
That statebuilding entails violence and dispossession, even in its contemporary form, is illustrated by the case of the Democratic Republic of Congo. The question this begs is not whether resistance exists but rather where and how it operates. Following James Scott, the article shows that resistance takes place as a quotidian strategy of mitigation...
Article
Full-text available
Paradoxically, the political success of human rights is often taken to be its philosophical failing. From US interventions to International NGOs to indigenous movements, human rights have found a place in diverse political spaces, while being applied to disparate goals and expressed in a range of practices. This heteronomy is vital to the global ap...

This paper examines the UN 2000 Trafficking Protocol in the context of international responses to the issue of people trafficking. Attention is drawn to the conceptual flaws in this new instrument regarding the failure to address domestic trafficking, not incorporating the purchasing and selling of people as defining characteristics of trafficking,...
Article
The conflict in the Democratic Republic of Congo demonstrates the many challenges that the inter-national community (symbolised in the UN and AU in this case) faces with its new self-proclaimed responsibility of reconstruction and state building. It is argued that both the UN and the AU would be more effective by guiding their strategies in light o...
