Giuffrida Alessandra

 I am an anthropologist, analyst and advisor specialising in voluntary and forced migration, mobility and migrants' networks in North and West Africa. Currently, I am working on the complementary relation between traditional medicine and biomedicine among Tuareg pastoralist groups and the causes underpinning the failure of delivering healthcare after decentralisation in Northern Mali. Over the years, I have carried extensive field research in Saharan and sub-Saharan Africa with pastoralists and agro-pastoralists in Darfour (Sudan), Southern Morocco and northern Mali. I obtained my MSc at the London School of Economics and my PhD in Social Anthropology at University College London thanks to a research post on an ESRC funded project among Tuareg returned refugees in the Region of Timbuktu, Mali. Since then I have continued my research across migrants’ networks in Mali, Morocco, Mauritania and Europe. I have taught in several universities in Europe and Africa. As well as pursuing my academic interests I facilitate development, rehabilitation, resilience and emergency relief programmes and projects for various national and international organisations working in the Sahara and the Sahel. Occasionally, I also participate as an expert commentator in radio and TV programmes of various media networks focussing on the Malian and Tuareg situation and its implications in the wider Saharan region.
