Patrik Johansson and Abrak Saati have authored the first Varieties of Peace Working Paper of 2020, published as part of the Umeå Working Papers in Peace and Conflict Studies series.
The paper, entitled "Different Methods for Analyzing Varieties of Peace" takes a methodological insight into the description and analysis of varieties of peace. To do so, it discusses the diversity of choices that a researcher, at a methods level, can make use of when setting out to capture the empirical reality of varieties of peace: indexes and scales, scale construction or typologies, to name but a few. It engages in a critical assessment of such methods, addressing both their advantages as well as their drawbacks.
This new Working Paper is now available in our publications page.
