CONFERENCE – « Food Aid, Power and Profit: An historical analysis of the relation between food aid and governance in Sudan », by Susanne JASPARS

CEDEJ Khartoum is pleased to announce the following event:

« Food Aid, Power and Profit: An historical analysis of the relation between food aid and governance in Sudan »

A conference by Susanne Jaspars

On Monday 6th March, 2017 at 4 PM
at the Faculty of Economic and Social sciences (meeting room) of the University of Khartoum

 Susanne will be presenting some of the key findings of her recently completed PhD research on food aid in Sudan. She studied at Bristol University, with Mark Duffield as her supervisor.  Professor Atta Al-Batahani at the University of Khartoum sponsored the research in Sudan.
 
Using concepts of genealogy and governmentality, Susanne’s thesis explores how food aid regimes of practices have changed over time and their interactions with local governance. It argues that shifts in regimes of practices can be seen as abandoning crisis-affected populations to become resilient to permanent emergency. At the same time, food aid has unintentionally led to a semblance of development for the Sudan government and private sector.
