Interdisciplinary action-research project on natural resources in central Africa


This project is funded by several partners


UCL and Fonds Wernaers have funded the elaboration and professionalization of the Land Rush Game.


Mandat d’Impulsion Scientifique 2015-2018. This FNRS project will allow identifying the challenges of the community theatre method through a comparative perspective, comparing Eastern DRC, Rwanda and Burundi.


PRD Research Project, 2016-2020. This project focuses upon South Kivu (DRC) and foresees in working out the action-research angle in close interaction with local civil society. 

Our research project is part of a larger interdisciplinary ARC research project, 2016-2021 (promotor: Prof. Vincent Legrand). This project will allow to verify whether the Land Rush theatre method can be adapted to different research settings (Rwanda, Senegal, Jordanie), to different research themes, and to different research participants (including civil society actors).
