Abstract:This special issue of the African Geographical Review examines the ways in which armed conflict, political violence, and its effects on people in places may be reconsidered from critical human geographic perspectives. Across the three papers included in the issue, intersecting dynamics of colonial legacy, territoriality and attachment to land and place in the constitution of identity, gender practices, the forging of everyday spaces amid sites of post-conflict survival, recovery, and refuge, are explored in detail. Contents: Introduction: political violence and armed conflict in Africa: people, places, processes, effects (by Kevin M. DeJesus); Victims of discourse: mobilizing narratives of fear and insecurity in post-conflict South Sudan - the case of Jonglei State (by Ann Laudati); The gendered politics of firewood in Kiryandongo refugee settlement in Uganda (by Deborah Mulumba); State and Stateless violence in Somalia (by Andrew Linke and Clionadh Raleigh).
