Currently, Komey is a senior member of a research team addressing the socio-political dynamics of borderland communities along the Sudan-South Sudan border. Additionally, he is the co-principal investigator for an emerging project entitled “Strengthening local peacebuilding institutions and conflict resolution mechanisms in the war ridden borderland communities in Sudan”. This is a joint action-oriented research project between the Centre for Peace and Development Studies, the University of Bahri, and the Carter Center. In this context his work focuses on grassroots communal peacebuilding mechanisms. Komey’s recent consultancies focus on examining the link between natural resource management and local conflicts in Kordofan and Butana of central Sudan.
