PAX et BELLUM

First edition of new Student Journal of Peace and Conflict Studies published at University of Uppsala

How do students prepare themselves for the practicalities of being an academic? The platforms related to peace and conflict studies that expose students to a thorough peer review and publication process are limited. Eight bachelor- and master students from the Department of Peace and Conflict Research (DPCR) detected there is room for improvement and established the first DPCR student journal: the PAX et BELLUM Journal.

 

Peacebuilding in small spaces. Too little or enough?

New issue of 'New Routes - A journal of peace research and action' on civil society and the concept of ‘peacebuilding in small spaces’
The opening article reflects on the relations between governments and civil society, especially in peacbuilding. In another article, Roger W. Foster and Jayne S. Docherty, Eastern Mennonite University, point to situations when ‘smallness’ in itself is an advantage. James A.

Uppsala Conflict Data Program

New tool for the study of armed conflict

Uppsala Conflict Data Program (UCDP) has released a new dataset which opens up new possibilities for the study of armed conflict. The dataset covers all armed conflicts in Africa from 1989 through 2010 and contains information on the precise date and place of individual instances (events) of armed violence. This allows for new research on the causes, dynamics, and resolution of armed conflict. Further, patterns and the geographic developments of conflicts can be analyzed using software for geographic information systems (GIS).

CfP: 'Gender, Power and Armed Conflict'

Call for a session within the conference „Equality, Growth and Sustainability - do they mix?“ (Sweden, 25-26 November 2010)

Around 40 countries worldwide are affected by civil wars or intense internal violent conflicts. Both women and men experience these violent conflicts as heavy human tragedies. But the gender specific roles, capacities and needs are different. Men and women are involved in military operations but still the majority of soldiers are men. During wars, while men are fighting, women often take over former male-dominated duties in addition to their traditional female roles. In violent conflict men tend to be injured and killed mostly by firearms.
