The working group is a student-led initiative that aims to facilitate research into the causes, character and consequences of armed conflict. With meetings taking place every fortnight, the group serves as a forum for students and researchers to discuss their own work and developments in the field, and as a meeting point to find areas of mutual interest and opportunities for collaboration and cooperation. Interdisciplinary in outlook and open to diverse theoretical and methodological approaches, the group is for anyone interested in advancing the study of armed conflict, civil war and related issues such as peacebuilding and post-war reconstruction.
The first meeting will take place on Thursday 18 February, 8.30am Allen and Overy Room, Pembroke College. Registration is essential - please email firstname.lastname@example.org. As space is very limited and considerable interest is anticipated, priority will be given in the first instance to graduate students enrolled on an Oxford University degree and to fulltime members of staff with a longer term interest in the working group. Please state your degree course/role when registering.
