    Research Interests

    My research examines the indigeneity-displacement-patriarchy nexus within post-modern international forced migration law regime. Four critical inquiries emerge: 1) the “rule of settler law” as an oppressive tool for systemic violence against Indigenous Peoples; 2) understanding the impact of intergenerational trauma on (Black African) Indigenous girls and women who are survivors of systemic violence; 3) survivorship, life histories, and agency of displaced peoples in owning their stories and charting the path they want; and 4) disrupting and deconstructing patriarchal norms in Africa (and elsewhere) across institutional, cultural, and community settings using attributes of transformative leadership for social change. The project adopts a complex interdisciplinary methodological design grounded in indigenous, anti-feminism, decoloniality, critical (race/legal) studies, intersectionality, and social determinants of health theory to assess whether Indigenous identity can be defined by genetics, geographical boundary, Eurocentric patriarchal colonialism, transplant of settler law, or shared global experiences. The project explores an application of transformative leadership for social change as a cornerstone for Africanising, indigenising, and decolonising institutions of higher education.
