Abstract: What does ongoing or recent conflict mean to the processes of social resilience? What are the compounded risks resulting from climate change and contributing to conflict? How far can the concept of crisis take us in order to understand the hardships of violent urban settlements? And how do youth navigate within peacebuilding paradigms in post-conflict areas? Welcome to discuss with scholars in Peacebuilding and Governance, Risk- and Management Studies, Anthropology, and Political Science. The webinar will be moderated by professor Helle Rydström from the department for Gender Studies.
