Ethics and Religion in Peace and Conflict, Religion in Contemporary Society as it is connected to Politics, Development Work and Secularisation, Intercultural and Interreligious Encounter and Dialogue.
As a student of Religion in Contemporary Society at MF, the Norwegian School of Theology, Religion and Society, I am currently working on my Master Thesis associated to PRIO. The thesis explores the role of ethics in peace negotiations and mediation, aiming at a broad and abstract mapping of ethical considerations. A focus is laid on the process and procedures of negotiations with a starting point of the negotiating parties perspectives.
