Kristian Berg Harpviken was invited by the Institute for the Study of International Migration (ISIM) at Georgetown University to spend five weeks from late September to early November as a guest researcher. The main focus during this period was on revising the manuscript for the forthcoming book – Social Networks and Wartime Migration in Afghanistan – which is on contract with Palgrave Macmillan and should be out in 2009. Harpviken also worked with Sarah Kenyon Lischer (Wake Forest University) on the theoretical framework for a new project that aims at explaining under what conditions refugees returning from militarized exile contexts continue to engage in organized violence upon coming home.
