Lilian and Emmanuel are both postgraduate students at KU Leuven: Lilian is doing a PhD within the research unit ‘Theological and Comparative Ethics’ at the Faculty of Theology; Emmanuel is doing a PhD within the research unit ‘Interculturalism, Minorities and Migration’ at the Faculty of Social Sciences.
Lilian's work focuses on non-violence and peace. Her research centers on Marshall Rosenberg's approach to nonviolent communication, mediation and transformation of conflicts, and on the role of empathy and on social change in organizations. Together with Emmanuel Chidozie, she investigates how this approach can contribute to the transformation of the many conflicts in Nigeria and beyond. She discovers with amazement that many people are interested in this approach and that they are capable and keen to learn and apply it. Her research has also enormously enriched her personal life.
Emmanuel Chidozie is associated with the organisation 'Home for the Needy' in Nigeria, where victims of violence by Boko Haram are looked after, especially women and children. People are guided and supported in processing the trauma they have experienced, regaining resilience, faith and trust, and expanding their lives.
Admission is free, however, voluntary contributions for the 'Home for the Needy' project in Nigeria are much needed and very welcome.
We respect the corona measures to protect others and ourselves.
