Dr. Kabamba's theoretical interests are the dynamics of conflict, new state formations, transnational trade networks, ethnicity, and global political-economic governance. He has extensive ethnographic experience in the Democratic Republic of the Congo as well as in Rwanda, Burundi, and Uganda. He has published articles on ethnicity, rebel controlled territories, economic empowerment, and modes of political production in the Canadian Journal of African Studies, Congo-Afrique, Anthropological Theory, and Africana. These concerns are also explored in his forthcoming book Business of Civil War: New Forms of Life from the Debris of the State (CODESRIA & Indiana University Press, 2012).
