Sarah Katz-Lavigne holds a joint PhD in International Affairs at the Norman Paterson School of International Affairs at Carleton University and in International Relations at the University of Groningen in the Netherlands.

Her PhD research focused on conflict at and around large-scale mining (LSM) sites in southeastern Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Specifically, she examined how a range of actors govern the so-called “clandestine” extraction of minerals from LSM sites, including government, public and private security, corporate officials, artisanal miners, and other actors in the supply chain. She also assessed the impact of the functioning of a multifaceted property rights regime on conflict and distributional dynamics at and around mine sites.

Sarah has published single-authored articles in The Extractive Industries and Society, Resources Policy, and Third World Thematics. She has co-authored papers with Moses Kiggundu (Carleton University) in the Africa Journal of Management and with Doris Buss, Aluoka Otieno, and Eileen Alma in the Canadian Journal of African Studies. She has also published policy-focused articles in The Washington Post’s Monkey Cage and in Africa is a Country and advocated against the idea that the artisanal mining of cobalt in the DRC is “conflict-affected” or “dirty”.
