Professor Philip Onguny’s research interests revolve around three topic clusters: political violence, identity-based conflicts, and role of media in conflict transformation and peace-building. He is also interested in the politics of international development and humanitarianism in fragile and/or conflict-affected societies. Professor Onguny is currently working on a SSHRC-funded project seeking to develop a comprehensive typology of frames to increase our understanding of the core issues fuelling ethno-political violence and land-based conflicts in Sub-Saharan Africa. The project draws on multi-sited ethnographic fieldwork in Kenya.
