Saint Paul University, Doctoral Student

Peace Mukazi Ndekezi is a doctoral student in the School of Conflict Studies at Saint Paul University.

Her research interests sit at the intersection of gender and peacebuilding.

Her doctoral research probes the agency of women in both formal and informal peacebuilding processes in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

The project is largely influenced by African feminism, Ubuntu philosophy, and Virginia Held’s “ethics of care”.

Outside academia, Peace works as Public Engagement Officer for Results Canada, a grassroots advocacy organization that mobilizes everyday people to end extreme poverty in low- and middle-income countries.

She has also worked as Emergency Response Team Responder with the Canadian Red Cross.
