Chapter 7: Scholarship of Engagement in Transitional Contexts: An African Focus
Conflict Resolution and the Scholarship of Engagement
Cheryl Lynn Duckworth
The compelling benefits of an international Scholarship of Engagement in the global arena are discussed in this chapter/ Through the lens of transitional justice in post-conflict situations in Africa, Dr. Muvingi explores the perceptions of community members' needs and challenges as framed by their own experiences to contribute to just understanding and resolution of these conflicts. Two empirical studies are discussed in the context of those differing local perceptions: the first focuses on the Rwandan genocide and the gacaca system in Rwanda, and the second on the Tree of Life initiatives in the ongoing conflicts in Zimbabwe.
