2010-04-29

 Prof. Heidi Hudson
Prof. Heidi Hudson, Programme Director of the Centre for Africa Studies (CAS) at the University of the Free State (UFS), has been invited by the African Studies Group (GEA) at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid in Spain to participate in an international seminar on peace-building with a special focus on Africa. The purpose of the seminar is to inform an evaluation report by the GEA on the Spanish peace-building strategy and Spain’s emerging role as a peace-building actor.

She has also been appointed by the Consortium for Peace Studies as the University of Calgary Research Fellow in Peace Studies in Canada for 2010-2011. Apart from conducting research, she will present a public lecture and interact with local peace activists and community leaders. Prof. Hudson’s research will examine the “violence” of liberal peace-building in Africa through a gender lens.
