Alumnus, M.S.
Kayemba Mvula

I am originally from the Democratic Republic of Congo but have lived most of my life in New Orleans. My research interests include human rights, access to justice, and private sector development. Most of my focus is on francophone Africa.  

Primary Classification: 
One of the benefits of being a student at Payson is that you are given the opportunity to study remotely while gaining valuable work experience and putting a lot of theory into practice. That kind of flexibility in a graduate program can be difficult to find. Due to this flexibility, I was able to take on this six-month fellowship and finish my degree program in the Spring.
  • B.A., Louisiana State University, Political Science, 2011
  • M.S., Tulane University, Payson Center for International Development 2014
