Yaliwe Clarke is the immediate past Director of the African Gender institute at the University of Cape Town, South Africa. Prior to this, since 2000, she worked with civil society organisations and interacted with a wide range of social justice activists, peace-builders/conflict resolution practitioners, diplomats, and peace and security personnel in over 11 countries in Africa. She is a skilled conflict resolution practitioner, trainer, and facilitator who has experience in assisting Non-Profit Organisations, and government officials across the African continent, particularly during her time as a Senior Trainer at the Centre for Conflict Resolution, based in Cape Town. Alongside this work, Yaliwe has taught and written on African Feminism, peace, security, and development at the University of Cape Town since 2008. She has a Phd in Social Development that investigated the micro-politics of women’s ‘peace activism’ in northern Uganda. She is also interested in: post-conflict reconstruction processes; social change processes in times of crisis; and notions of respectable femininity, marriage, pleasure, and (hetero)sexuality in Africa. She is also co-founder of Maliya Tours and Tranfers which focuses on travelers seeking out sites and histories in South Africa that are distinct from those in other countries and based on the the co-founders experiences living in the Western Cape. Yaliwe's parents are form the UK, where she was born and Zambia where she was raised, while her co-founder is Kenyan which speaks directly to their mission of showing other diasporan travelers an understanding of Southern Africa tht differs from other tours offered in the market.
