Dear CIHA blog readers,

Please check out Ben Cox's interview with Danny Hoffmann, professor, photographer, and author of The War Machines: Young Men and Violence in Sierra Leone and Liberia. This is the first of three posts on the moral economy of resource extraction, with its attendant violent commodification of people's lives. Those interested in digging deeper into issues that have been labelled "the resource curse" will find these posts to be extremely provocative. As always, we look forward to your comments!

And don't forget to check out "In the News" and "Opportunities" for current events and job and grant opportunities.


With your help, we are striving to create a growing forum to address the many contours and perspectives within ongoing debates about humanitarianism in Africa. Please help us grow (we now have a readership of over 1000 people across Africa, North America, Europe, and parts of Asia) by subscribing to the blog and sharing our site with interested friends and colleagues!
