We are really please to announce the 3rd edition of the “NASP International Workshop on Conflicts and Institutions“, Genova, 26 June 2018.
Here you’ll find the Call for papers.
At this link you’ll find further details on the new “Observatory on Conflicts” of the University of Genova.
Here below additional details on the Workshop.
The dramatic events and emergencies in the Mediterranean, Middle East, and North Africa region show us the need of understanding how the domestic institutions can influence violent conflicts and, conversely, how, these conflicts can affect the domestic institutions. The last two years the University of Genoa, in cooperation with NASP, organized the conference “Conflicts & Institutions: Research, Projects and Workshops” (2016, 2017). In continuity with those events also this year we have invited leading scholars in conflicts studies, democratization, peacebuilding and international security.
The main goal of the workshop is still to specify the links and the connections between the ongoing crises and the current conflicts to examine the relation between institutions and conflicts. At the same time, the Project “Conflicts & Institutions” aims at creating a network of scholars able to elaborate common research projects and proposals.
The current project has been designed and coordinated by Giampiero Cama (University of Genoa), Andrea Ruggeri (University of Oxford), and Fabrizio Coticchia (University of Genoa).
The workshop is co-funded by the University of Genoa, the Department of Political Science (DISPO) and by NASP (Network for Advancement of Social and Political Studies).
Among several participants there will be: Stefano Costalli (University of Florence), Francesco N. Moro (University of Bologna), Vincenzo Bove (Warwick), Silvia D’Amato (University of Florence), Giampiero Cama (University of Genoa), Andrea Ruggeri (University of Oxford), Mara Morini (University of Genoa), and Fabrizio Coticchia (University of Genoa).
