Lidewyde Berckmoes

As associate professor and senior researcher at the African Studies Centre Leiden, Lidewyde Berckmoes employs life-course and intergenerational perspectives to increase understanding of cyclical dynamics of conflict and peace in the Great Lakes Region, particularly Burundi and Rwanda.

Trained as a cultural anthropologist, Lidewyde uses anthropological perspectives while building collaborations with colleagues in migration studies, medical anthropology, psychology and psychiatry to come to new insights in long-term effects of conflict on children, young people and families. Her PhD study describes social practices that shape dynamics of ongoing (mis)trust in aftermath of conflict in Burundi (VU University Amsterdam, 2014). Subsequently she worked on various postdoc projects, including on transnational parenting, SRHR among young refugees, intergenerational transmission of trauma, and conflict heritage among diaspora youth. Currently, Lidewyde acts as principal investigator of the research project Pedagogies of peace and conflict in the Great Lakes region, for which she collaborates with the University of Rwanda, and is convenor of the ASCL Collaborative Research Group (CRG) Conflict continuities. She teaches various courses on research methodology in the BA and MA African Studies.
