Doornebal covered the peace talks between the notorious Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) and the governments of Uganda and South Sudan and interviewed two former wives of Africa’s most wanted man: Joseph Kony. In Eastern DRC (Democratic Republic of Congo) he visited rebel leader Laurent Nkunda and while in South Sudan, he got caught up in a firefight between South Sudanese and north-Sudanese forces.
More recently, Doornebal published the book ‘Oeganda onder president Museveni’ (Uganda under President Museveni) that covers Ugandan politics, war and society between 1980 and the 2021 elections.
Guest lecture will take place on Thursday, 17 February, 13:30-15:00 at VU Amsterdam, HG-5A24 (Main building).
