An Inception Workshop for the “Changing Character of Conflict Platform“ project was held in the department on Friday 26 May. The workshop brought together team members, advisors, collaborators and external contributors to kick-start the 4-year project, which is funded by the UK Research Council’s Partnership for Conflict, Crime and Security Research.

Participants represented the Social Sciences, Arts, Humanities and STEM, with backgrounds in differing methodological approaches and various regional expertise, covering all cases selected for the project. After sharing perspectives on the actors, methods, environments, resources and impact of change in conflict, they focussed on reconciling methods and disciplines to inform the project’s direction.
