Guest researcher at Georgetown University


26 September 2008

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.
