Opening library exhibition: security and crime in Lusophone Africa

The ASCL Library has undertaken the effort of complementing its catalogue with scholarly work on security and crime in Lusophone Africa to address this academic gap in the Netherlands. Gabriel Pinto Stiebler, student of the Honours Academy in the Faculty of Governance and Global Affairs at Leiden University, who worked on this project during an internship of three months, curated a small, focused exhibition of books, journals, newspapers, and reports on security in Angola, Mozambique, Cabo Verde, and Guinea Bissau. Gabriel will introduce the collection and reflect on his personal experiences during this process. Assistant Professor Corinna Jentzsch (Institute of Political Science, Leiden University), who recently published her book 'Violent Resistance: Militia Formation and Civil War in Mozambique', will comment on how to use different sources to understand historical and contemporary security issues in Mozambique.
