Research

Within the wider academic field of peace studies and conflict resolution, Chuka's doctoral research investigates the root causes of violent ethnic mobilization in the constitutional democratic states of Africa, particularly in the Nigerian Niger-Delta region. Using the Kaufmanian ethnosymbolic theoretical framework as a  guide, the project seeks to analyse the mechanisms by which ethnic tensions metamorphose into full scale violent clashes. It equally aspires to comprehend why such violent confrontations often persist, despite governmental and non-governmental efforts at eradicating them.

Understanding the complex dynamics of politically salient intra-state violent conflicts is a necessary precondition for designing appropriate conflict resolution strategies. In this regard, the positive contribution of his project to political peace processes in Africa, and beyond, is not in doubt.
