Dr. Moritz’s research focuses on the transformation of African pastoral systems. He examines how pastoralists adapt to changing ecological, political and institutional conditions that affect their lives and livelihoods. He has been conducting research with pastoralists in the Far North Region of Cameroon since 1993. The long-term research has resulted in strong collaborations with local researchers, which has allowed him to develop innovative, interdisciplinary research projects with colleagues at Ohio State and the University of Maroua in Cameroon.
