Four project members will take part in the Development Research Conference in Gothenburg 22-23 August. We are chairing the panel “Urban violence: causes, consequences and characteristics” on Thursday 23 August, 9.00–10.30, in room SA403. On the panel, Annika Björkdahl and Ivan Gusic will present a paper which theorizes urban violence, and Kristine Höglund and Emma Elfversson will present on urban violence in Nairobi. In addition, Luuk Slooter from Utrecht University will present a paper on disaggregating urban riots from terrorist attacks. We hope to see you there!
