As a PhD candidate you will be responsible for research activities within the NORFACE/Belmont forum T2S programme ‘Securing Tenure, Sustainable Peace?', a collaboration between CICAM, Radboud University Nijmegen; Sociology of Development and Change, Wageningen University; Centre for Development Studies, Université catholique de Louvain; Centre d’Etudes et Recherche pour la Promotion Rurale, Bukavu; Integrated Research Institute, Université Chrétienne Bilingue du Congo, Beni; ZOA Netherlands/Burundi/DRC; UN-Habitat Nairobi; and Action pour la Paix et la Concorde, Bukavu.
This project aims to contribute to a better understanding of the challenges of land registration approaches in Burundi and eastern DR Congo and in particular how these deal with the recognition of competing claims in conflict-affected settings. Fieldwork on land registrations programmes in Burundi and DRC forms the core of the programme. In addition, it involves knowledge-sharing with practitioners to generate instruments that help better map potential outcomes of interventions.
You will be responsible for conducting extensive ethnographic research on land registration programmes in Burundi. You will collaborate with the Congolese partners in the project, conducting some fieldwork in DRC, and organise applied theatre workshops. You will contribute to knowledge sharing activities, including workshops with practitioner organisations in the Great Lakes Region and the Netherlands, and take care of stakeholder management in Burundi. You will contribute to and co-author various publications in peer-reviewed journals, as well as policy notes.
Fieldwork in Burundi (and DRC) is conditional upon the prevailing security situation. The candidate will be expected to comply with the security regulations of Radboud University/CICAM.
Intended start date is 1 October 2018.
