Bridget Fonkeu



I am an assistant lecturer and a research assistant at the Technical University of Dortmund in Germany. My area of interest is sociolinguistics, multilingualism and language contact. That is why I am interested in socio-economic and socio-political networking. Presently, I am investigating the sociolinguistic (re)construction of identity by the Cameroonian immigrants in Germany. I hope this forum will provide a useful platform for the exchange of ideas with people who share the same interest.

I work independently work in communities and rural areas in assisting needy people by giving them legal counsel and advice especially to most vulnerable people like women and children not forgetting elder people.I have connections with well respected lawyers whom I work with by referring to them cases of those poor people who can not afford to hire a lawyer to present them.I also sensitize and educate communities of their legal rights to inherit deceased estate as it is becoming a norm in Malawi for members of a departed member to confiscate properties left behind from a widow and children as these people doesn’t have any idea of where to go to address their grievances.Monitoring employees if they are adhering to legal standards of employment according to the constitution of Malawi which condemns the employment of children and if the law is broken it is my responsibility to confront the lawbreaker and take necessary measures to address the matter to the necessary authorities.I also volunteer in any projects in my area of jurisdiction in projects and other functions which are legal in nature and work as a facilitator in mediation issues in our area and surrounding communities where we work with chiefs to solve misdemeanour cases and family issues to minimise the backlog of cases in courts.

I get the Master in Science degree in March 2011 at doctoral school of Faculty of Agronomics Sciences in the same University. Since 2013 to then, i am a PhD student in Natural Ressources management at Laboratory of Applied Ecology/University of Abomey-Calavi.
My fields research were: functioning of grasslands ecosystem; plant communities establishment, ecology of grassland’s species and grassland dynamics in the context of climate change. I’m struggling to pass from researcher to full lecturer and teacher in the Faculty of Agronomic Sciences of the University of Abomey-Calavi in my country Benin before the end of 2016. I have some papers which were published and others which were submitted.
My responsabilities and activities were resumed in three major activities:
 research activities: field work and research implementation, data collection in ecology and grasslands restoration, quantitative and qualitative data analysis, projects elaboration on climate change and grasslands dynamic, publications and communication posters writing, biodiversity, exams supervision, marking;
 teaching activities: controlled works and praticals doing for students in BSc, research assistance, aid for ecology and grasslands management courses in Faculty of Agronomy Sciences at University of Abomey-Calavi;
 consulting activities: aid to districts concerning development plan establishment and others.
I help BSc and new engineering students in management of natural ressources and climate change research. My collaboration with others institutions’ scientists will give birth to the creation of a research and exchange network on climate change and management of natural ressources in order to facilitate the West African communities adaptations.
