Another McGill University student joins PLE

Stephen S. Moiko has joined the People Livestock and Environment Theme, in Nairobi to complete his dissertation. A Ph.D Candidate, Dept. of Anthropology at the McGill University, Montreal, Canada, Stephen is interested in the dynamics of changing property rights and land tenure on the livelihoods of pastoral people in rangeland environments.

He conducted his doctoral research in 2007-8, in Southern Kenya (Olkiramatian Group Ranch) where he examined systems of communal land governance and evolving local institutions for resource management in the area.

“We welcome Stephen to the team and look forward to a time interaction and challenge as we work together around issues in the rangelands”, says Dr Jan de Leeuw, the Team Leader for PLE 2 – Reducing vulnerability of livestock-based livelihoods, ecosystem goods & services in pastoral and agropastoral Systems. The Team already has another Mcgill student Philip Osano who is on his final leg of the PhD.
