Description

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. She is the author of State of Rebellion: Violence and Intervention in the Central African Republic (Zed/Chicago, 2016), and Hunting Game: Raiding Politics in the Central African Republic (Cambridge, 2020).

Enrica Picco is a lawyer and researcher focusing on the central African region and a former member of the UN Panel of Experts on the Central African Republic. With almost fifteen years of field experience, mostly with Médecins sans Frontières, she has combined managerial and humanitarian affairs positions with research and lectures. Enrica is currently working with a broad range of institutions, including the United Nations, international NGOs and think tanks. She is also the author of several journal articles and academic reviews. Her research focuses on conflict dynamics, population displacement and justice issues.

Background readings are available one week prior to workshop.  To request readings, email: schell.law@yale.edu.
