The CSCW is one of 13 Centres of Excellence established by the Research Council of Norway in 2003. Over the past decade, its research has been driven by three main questions: Why do civil wars break out? How are they sustained? And what does it take to build a durable civil peace? This seminar will present research highlights and key findings from both the working groups and the Centre as a whole.
Themes include the following:
Why do civil wars break out?
Trends in Conflict
Climate Change and Conflict
How are they sustained?
Transnational and Social Dynamics
What does it take to build a durable civil peace?
Post Conflict Justice
Presenters are: Scott Gates, Jeffrey Checkel, Jon Elster, Halvard Buhaug, Sabine Carey, Karl Ove Moene, Ola Listhaug, Håvard Hegre, and Ragnhild Nordås.
