Alexandra is a doctoral student at the Université de Montréal, under the supervision of Professor Marie-Joëlle Zahar. Her research focuses on what undermines peacebuilding efforts in the Central African Republic. Through this research, Alexandra explores how the government’s exclusionary practices hinder the country’s prospects for peace following its 2013-2014 Civil War. Her research also seeks to illustrate how the international community’s disproportionate focus on large milestones such as peace accords, elections, and reform promises has led them to ignore the widespread exclusion. Prior to starting her Ph.D., Alexandra worked on issues related to conflict, peacebuilding, forced displacement, and humanitarian need in Burkina Faso, Cameroon, the Central African Republic, Chad, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Lebanon, Nigeria, and Mali for nearly a decade.
