As already stated (here), we are pleased to announce the 3rd NASP “International Workshop on Conflicts and Institutions”, Genova, 26 June 2018.
Here you’ll find all the info on this terrific workshop, which is open to everyone.
If you are interested in conflicts and institutions you should be there! You’ll find scholars such as Fearon, Snidal, Ruggeri, Bove, Lucarelli, Moro, Costalli, and many others.
In the last two years the University of Genova hosted the leading scholars on conflicts, such as Kalyvas, Cederman, Carey, Hegre, Dorussen, Colombo, Bakke, Clayton, Daxecker, Belloni, and many others.
Here below the description of the event and the detailed agenda of the workshop:
The last two years the University of Genova organized the conference “Conflicts & Institutions: Research, Projects and Workshops”. 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 crisis 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 Genova), Andrea Ruggeri (University of Oxford), and Fabrizio Coticchia (University of Genova).
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).
The conference will be held at the University of Genova (DISPO – Department of Political Science).
