Liliane Umubyeyi

I have been working on processes of conflict resolution, crisis management and democratic governance for the last eight years. As a consultant for the Parisian Observatory for Emergency Services, I am currently conducting a survey on refugees’ reception centers in the Ile de France region. This project aims to better understand migratory flows and refugees’ experiences in France. I also recently managed a research project for Avocats Sans Frontières on mechanisms of conflict resolution in five cities (Bambari, Bangassou, Berberati, Bria & Ndélé) in the Central African Republic. In 2016, I worked as a consultant to evaluate projects for the International Center for Transitional Justice in Côte d’Ivoire and the Democratic Republic of Congo. From September 2015 to September 2016, I was a lecturer and researcher at the Université Paris Ouest Nanterre la Défense in the Political Sciences Department, where I taught courses on Political Institutions from a comparative perspective, introduction to political sciences, and the history of the European Union. From 2011 to 2014, I was a teaching fellow at Sciences Po Paris and in the department of International Affairs of the Ecole Supérieure des Sciences Commerciales d’Angers (ESSCA) where I taught courses on European Union-Africa relations in a globalized world and the anthropology and sociology of law. Prior to this experience, I worked as an intern in a number of NGOs, including the Belgian Ligue des droits de l’Homme, a leading human rights organization, on immigration detention centers in Belgium and the International Association of Research on Crimes against Humanity and Genocides, where I conducted a literature review on the process of conflict resolution in the Balkans.

In 2015, I completed a PhD in Social Sciences from the Ecole Normale Supérieure de Cachan in France ( with highest honors) and a PhD in Law from the University Saint Louis Brussels ( with highest honors). Based on ethnographic and survey research conducted over the course of eight months in South Africa and the United States, my dissertation examined transformations in the claims of victims of apartheid since the emergence of alternative judicial institutions like truth and reconciliation commissions.
From 2012 to 2013, I was a visiting PhD student at the Anthropology department of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). In 2009, I completed a one year complementary master degree (with highest honors) in Legal Theory at the European Academy of Legal Theory and the University Saint Louis-Bruxelles. Prior to this complementary master degree, from 2006 to 2008,I did a master degree in private law ( with honors) from the Université Libre de Bruxelles (Belgium). In 2008, I completed a 3 year bachelor degree in Law at the Université Libre de Bruxelles.
Beside this background in law and social sciences, I have a certificate in African literature obtained in 2006 from a belgian NGO" Coopération par l' Education et la Culture".
