About me

I am a Doctoral Researcher at the Tampere Peace Research Institute (TAPRI), Tampere University, Finland with active interest in Visual Peace, Everyday Peace, Nonviolent Civil Resistance, Pre/Post-colonial violence, and Sub-Saharan Africa. My doctoral research analyses the intractability and transformation of latent communal violence in Ghana. My most recent work (co-authored with Frank Möller and Tarja Väyrynen), “Two maps, two tales and two truths: a purposeful transformational approach to the Nkonya-Alavanyo conflict in Ghana” (forthcoming, 2023) in Journal of Peacebuilding & Development make a theoretical case for the local-local turn in peacebuilding which reflects many claims made in the local turn but substantializes them by, among other things, adding an emancipatory element to the local in peacebuilding – emancipatory, that is, with regard to external mediators.
