Virtual Research Workshop held in June
"Challenges of Making Peace Researchable - Methodological Pluralism, Opportunities and Pitfalls"
This two-day workshop was successfully held on June 9-10, and included discussions of twelve great papers, exploring various issues around how we study peace. The workshop investigated assumptions about peace, and how these in turn shape the way we approach the study of peace, in terms of both research design and data collection as well as in the process of writing up and disseminating findings.
The organizing team wishes to thank all participants for their contributions to the stimulating discussions, and look forward to engage further with each of your research projects in the future.
