Chris Dolan

Dr. Chris Dolan: Chris is best known for his work on gender dynamics, sexual violence and masculinities in conflict and post-conflict settings. He first worked with Mozambican refugees in South Africa as it was transitioning out of Apartheid in the early 1990s. This led to work with former RENAMO and FRELIMO combattants in Mozambique in the mid-1990s and conflict analysis with Internally Displaced Persons in northern Uganda in the late 1990s. The latter research resulted in the publication of 'Social Torture: The Case of northern Uganda, 1986-2006 by Berghahn books in 2009. After completing his doctorate at the London School of Economics in 2005, he spent a year with UNHCR in the Democratic Republic of Congo as a Reintegration Officer, before taking up his current position as Director of the Refugee Law Project, a community outreach project of the Faculty of Law at Makerere University in Kampala, in 2006 (www.refugeelawproject.org). In that position he has also served as Project Advisor to the Beyond Juba Project, which in turn gave rise to the Institute for African Transitional Justice and the Kitgum Peace Documentation Centre.
