T. M. Makori

I am assistant professor in globalisation and development in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences. My research focuses on the lived experiences and historical entanglements of communities experiencing rapid social change due to resource extraction in the Democratic Republic of Congo and beyond.

Currently, I am completing a study assessing the social, economic and environmental impacts of due diligence programs designed to trace conflict minerals in eastern Democractic Republic of Congo.

Prior to joining the Faculty of Arts and Social Science at Maastricht University, I was a post-doctoral fellow in human geography at the University of Toronto, where i also completed my PhD. I teach in the Masters in Globalisation and Development Studies, the Bachelor in Global Studies and in Social Sciences at University College Maastricht.
