Workshop on post-conflict peace and stability

On 4-5 May 2017 we host a workshop on post-conflict peace and stability at the University of Mannheim. This workshop facilitates the discussion and exchange of research projects that focus on post-conflict peace and stability. We also discuss our upcoming field work in Nepal, Georgia and Sri Lanka, where we explore the role of the media and armed groups in the quality and condition of post-conflict peace. External participants include Kristin Bakke, Scott Gates, Indra de Soysa, Alexander da Juan and Nino Abzianidze.

It is based on our recently published (open access) study and presents five (surprising) findings about the killings of journalists.
