I have studied the relationship between diviner beliefs and conflicts among the Nuer people in the Republic of South Sudan up until now. Since the eruption of the conflict in South Sudan in 2013, I have continued my research by tracing South Sudanese refugees who have fled to neighboring countries. At present, I am working on this research with interests in how they maintain their livelihood norms and social relationships in the areas to which they fled, as well as how they face their lives and their experiences of the conflicts while recreating their lives in the new environments.
