Belindah Okello

Belindah is a PhD candidate whose area of focus is African History.  She is currently interested in issues of migration and its attendant effects on both the migrating group, and the host community.  Her PhD project is centred on the Luo community who have migrated into Mombasa Kenya. The project aims to understand patterns of Luo migration into Mombasa at different historical periods in Kenya, the strategies the migrating group have adopted to integrate into their new homeland, their experiences of ethnicity, and the effects the migration process has had on their identity.

Belindah has previously worked on a project on education development in Kenya, focusing mainly on the development of African secondary education.
