Louisa Lombard is Associate Professor on Term of Anthropology at Yale University. She is a cultural anthropologist who studies African borderland areas where the state is largely absent, and a range of actors govern. Her current research projects explore transformations in the practice of war in Central Africa: aggressive military peacekeepers' ethics; human displacement and justice; and the changing ways people use violence to protect what they hold sacred.
