Astrid Jamar

University of Edinburgh

Associate, Centre of African Studies.

Dr Jamar's research experience has centred around two questions: how can a society recover from mass violence, and how can international aid support such a process? From 2008 to 2011, she gained field experience working with several international NGOs and local institutions implementing transitional justice processes in Rwanda and Burundi, reflections on which formed the basis of her doctoral research. She has worked on various dimensions of peacebuilding, human rights and transitional justice policies, and is particularly interested in understanding the everyday struggles of aid practitioners in Rwanda and Burundi, and the frictions between global/local dimensions in policy-making and the implementation of aid-dependent transitional justice policies.
