African Studies Centre in Leiden, the Netherlands has a vacancy for 3 PhD researchers in the Programme 'GROUNDING LAND GOVERNANCE'

Within the framework of a collaborative project on land governance with Mbarara University in Uganda, Nijmegen University, and Wageningen University, the African Studies Centre has 3 PhD-positions to offer:

The candidates will work as a team with a Post-doc researcher and the supervisory team to investigate how land governance evolves in post-conflict situations, as an outcome of the interaction between multiple stakeholders, including government, traditional authorities, NGOs, and local people. The research will focus in particular at how decentralization influences relations of governance, how it impacts the legitimacy and authority of local institutions, and how it affects the resolution of land conflicts. A central aim of the project is to foster learning and stimulate exchange on this theme between academics, development organizations, local community institutions, and local governments.
