Shaping Peace – Local Infrastructures and State Formation

CfP for Third Annual Conference of the International Association for Peace and Conflict Studies in Manchester

What shapes peace? We are familiar with the top-down interventions organised around military, statebuilding and governance interventions, but what about the local infrastructures of peace that involve local agency? How does this agency create new institutions or interacts with existing ones? What are the sources of inspiration for these local infrastructures, and how do they relate to local, national, regional and international norms and structures of peacebuilding?

Where Peace and Conflict Take Place. Analysing Peace and Conflict from a Spatial Perspective

Call for Papers for an Edited Volume of Lund University and Philipps-University of Marburg. Deadline for submissions: 31 March 2014

Analysing violent conflicts and peace building from a spatial perspective is slowly but steadily holding entry into critical peace and conflict studies. The objective of the edited volume is to advance this development by providing a collection of chapters which explore the relationship between space, conflict and peace, both empirically and theoretically. It seeks to map the diverse ways in which space and place are presently conceptualised and analytically employed to make sense of conflict and peace.

Conditions, scope and forms of violence amongst conflict-related refugee communities

CfP (for an edited volume) at Centre for Conflict Studies, Marburg. Deadline for submissions: 30 November 2013

For most persons, the end of conflicts does not represent the end of violence.

In recent years, the body of literature about sexual violence against women and men in camps has grown, shedding some light on the scope of the abuses.
