KZN's Internally Displaced People, 31 March

IDPs and Rural Communities in Kwazulu Natal-The Strategy for Post- Conflict Reconstruction.

Speaker: Akin Akikboye
Date: Thursday 31 March 2016
Time: 12:30-14:00
Venue: CCS Seminar Room 602, 6th Floor, MTB Tower, Howard College, University of KwaZulu-Natal

The internal displacement process has many roots in KwaZulu-Natal, and this study tracks to the ways colonialism defeated the Zulu nation and apartheid labour migration destroyed the countryside as context for the conflicts in the 1980s. The post-apartheid era also witnessed forms of socio-economic and political tension in KZN. Strategies for civil society's assistance to internally-displaced people are also considered.

Akin Akiboye is presently working on the PhD thesis, "Re-building of Rural Communities by IDPs in a Post-Conflict South Africa" at Wageningen University Research Centre. He was a former UNDP Disaster Management Co-ordinator and Advisor to both Ugandan and Namibian governments between 1998 and 2006. He is also a visiting scholar at the University of the Free State's International Institute for Studies on Race, Reconciliation and Social Justice.
