Project 1 – Living the Everyday: Health-seeking in times of sickness and epidemics at Uganda's borders
Hosted by LSE’s Firoz Lalji Centre for Africa in partnership with Muni University and the University of Gulu, Uganda, this project addresses how social relations and everyday life affect knowledge and the management of sickness.
Project 2 – Deconstructing Notions of Resilience; Exploring coping strategies and resilience in post-conflict Uganda
This research explores how people negotiate, experience and understand their own coping strategies and resilience, as well as how these are affected by external forces and interventions.
Project 3 – Localised Evidence and Decision-making (LEAD)
The project creates explicit links between local practitioners and the development evidence, identifying local evidence needs and elucidating the complexity of implementation from the local perspective. Fieldwork is focused on the epidemiologically relevant areas of Kenya, Malawi, Tanzania and Uganda.
Project 4 – The Politics of Return: Exploring the dynamics of return and reintegration of refugees in Central and Eastern Africa
By analysing how refugees, internally-displaced persons and former combatants negotiate and experience 'return', this project fills a large gap in current knowledge on the 'lifecycle' of conflicts in some of the world's most difficult places.
