Current Research

Her principal research interests are on the intersection between global geo-politics, militarism, masculinities, genocidal violence, humanitarianism and forced migration in East and Central Africa. She is also interested in the dynamics of land tenure, resource extraction and environmental change from a political ecology perspective. Her other projects include an examination of the condition of new African diaspora communities in Great Britain, focusing on issues relating to their spatial distribution, socio-economic status and housing characteristics, and the negotiation of their multiple identities, especially that arising from the experience of trans-racial fostering.  http://www.geog.ox.ac.uk/staff/pdaley.html#bio

  1. We wish to thank you just as before for the lovely ideas you gave
    Jesse when preparing a post-graduate research and also, most importantly, pertaining to providing all the
    ideas in a blog post. Provided we had known of your web site a year ago, i’d
    have been kept from the useless measures we were
    taking. Thanks to you.
