Footnotes from the British Underground

This blog began as venue for my stories as I traveled in Africa. 18 months later, I return to it as I travel to study as a Marshall Scholar in the United Kingdom. My hope is that this blog can be a conduit for you - my family, friends and secret/strange admirers - to track my movements, see a photo or two and get a glimpse of my days in the UK. Apologies once again to Dostoevsky for the blog's name...

After graduating from Notre Dame, I'm off to England for graduate study. I'll be studying for a M.A. in International Politics and Security Studies. When not studying, I'm continuing to coordinate Uganda-CAN's efforts to end the 20-year war in northern Uganda!

The Silent Tsunami of IDPs in Africa

The linked article from the United Nations highlights the plight of the world's internally displaced peoples - some 25 million people, of which 13 million are in Africa. This is truly a silent tsunami that deserves the attention and action of the global community. The Great Lakes Region of Africa may be the most troubled spot with 5-6 million IDPs in Sudan, 2-3 million IDPs in the Democratic Republic of Congo and 1.5-2 million IDPs in Uganda.
