Abstract: Despite little consensus on its meaning, the term ‘peacebuilding’ is frequently employed by practitioners and academics. Dramatic differences in what types of activities fall under the label and variable assumptions about when peacebuilding begins and ends makes the term unwieldy and comparative work challenging. The objective of this paper is therefore to improve peacebuilding’s conceptual utility in order to facilitate the exchange of ideas and advance research in the field. I accomplish this objective by first assessing peacebuilding’s current conceptual utility using two measures: Gerring’s (1999) seven criteria of conceptual ‘goodness’ and interviews with practitioners working in a post-conflict environment (Rwanda). Using these assessments as a guide, I then suggest three ways to improve peacebuilding’s conceptual utility: (1) clarify what is unique about conducting development and state-building in post-conflict environments; (2) identify the links and tensions between each of the macro-process (economic development, state-building, and social reconciliation/justice) involved in building peace, and (3) elucidate how the priorities of peacebuilding alter as the length of time since the conflict increases. The paper concludes by suggesting answers to each of these tasks.

Abstract: There is a call for the production of more doctorates in Africa. The problem is that the current models are neither efficient for the production of masses of doctoral graduates nor supportive to those pursuing the degrees. This paper provides a supervision framework for the production of doctoral graduates.

"Toward a Sociology of Racial Conceptualization: Conceptualizing “Race” as Multi-level and Multi-dimensional" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Sociological Association Annual Meeting, Colorado Convention Center and Hyatt Regency, Denver, CO, Aug 16, 2012 Online <PDF>. 2018-09-25 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p565216_index.html>

Abstract: How can sociologists establish empirical, theoretical and methodological clarity about “race” as a social construction? How can sociologists contribute toward a sociology of racial conceptualization? How can we conceptualize race as dynamic, contingent, multi-dimensional and multi-level social construction? In 2003 the American Sociological Association published a statement on the importance of collecting and doing scientific research on race. Nearly a decade later, the need to continue to unpack the dynamics contributing to historic and on-going race-based inequalities in health, housing, education, the criminal justice system and the labor market among other social institutions, remains one of the most important research challenges for sociologists and other scholars of racial stratification. While a number of scholars have alluded to the disconnect that exists between the conceptualization of race as a dynamic, contingent, multi-dimensional and multi-level socially constructed phenomenon, there continues to be a disconnect between this theoretical insight and research design and data collection in both qualitative and quantitative research. In this paper I sketch the outlines of a conceptual model of race that is anchored in unpacking the multi-dimensional (e.g., self-identity, socially defined racial status, cumulative lived experience and life course embodiment, etc.) and multi-level (e.g., micro-level/individual, meso-level/institutional and macro-levels/societal) facets of “race.”

Abstract: This paper describes the components and criteria for conceptualization and measurement in comparative qualitative research in order to use these criteria to analyze the RNGS ( Research Network on Gender Politics and the State) conceptualization and measurement of women’s movements and feminism. It also assesses the applicability of the RNGS concepts to other cases and contexts and generally argues for more rigor in applying these concepts to cross-national qualitative analysis.
