“Violence, peacebuilding and the city” workshop

The project was well-represented at the “Violence, peacebuilding and the city" workshop held at Durham University 6-7 September. Annika Björkdahl presented the project, Emma Elfversson presented ongoing statistical research on patterns of armed conflict violence in cities, and Ivan Gusic (pictured) presented his research on urban conflict in postwar cities Belfast, Mitrovica and Mostar. The workshop, organized within the Matariki network, brought together an interdisciplinary group of researchers in different ways engaging with conflict and urban space.
