Graduate Research:
Andre's area of study is South Africa and his research is attempting to explain or at least begin explaining the relational discontinuities that inhere in the dual definitions of justice in South Africa. Looking at legitimacy as social capital he plans to account for the existence of alternate criminal justice systems and the implications of this for the legitimacy of state-administered justice in South Africa and therefore for the implied contractarianism which normally appertains to the modern states and their agents. He is currently a Graduate Student Researcher in the James S. Coleman African Studies Center and a member of the African Activists Association. This summer he plans to do Zulu at the UCLA Summer Languages Program and conduct research in Johannesburg, South Africa.
