The ambition of the ODAS project is to explain how online dangerous speech contributes to communal violence in India. The ultimate ambition of ODAS is to test a causal connection between dangerous online speech and violence. To do so, speech and violence data must be merged.
This is one out of five PRIO projects that today have received funding from the Research Council of Norway.
PRIO Global Fellow Cyanne E. Loyle visits PRIO this week to present her research with Helga Malmin Binningsbø and Scott Gates on During-Conflict Justice at the Norwegian MFA. She is director of the Political, Economic and Legal Institutions and Organizations Program at the Ostrom Workshop at Indiana University and member of the Political Science Faculty.
The first issue in 2017 the PRIO Gender, Peace and Security Update is now out.
The lead story in this issue includes an interview with Sarah Douglas, Gender Advisor at the United Nations Peacebuilding Support Office, about how the UN Peacebuilding Fund has managed to surpass the target for financing gender-specific projects.
Cyanne E. Loyle, Assistant professor at the Department of Political Science at Indiana University, has recently been appointed PRIO Global Fellow. Loyle is working closely with PRIO researchers Helga Malmin Binningsbø and Scott Gates on various projects on the use and misuse of judicial processes during and after armed conflict.
We are happy to announce that the Research Concil of Norway (FRIPRO) has funded a 3-year project studying whether development aid contributes to reduce intergroup health inequalities after conflict. The project will be led by Henrik Urdal, and will be an excellent complement to the ongoing Armed Conflict and Maternal Health in Sub-Saharan Africa project.
Congratulations to all the researchers involved!
Today it was announced that no less than two research projects at PRIO have been granted funding from the FRISAM call at the Norwegian Research Council. The two projects are Sexual Violence in Armed Conflict (SVAC) led by Inger Skjelsbæk, and Negotiating the Nation: Implications of Ethnic and Religious Diversity for National Identity (NATION), led by Marta Bivand Erdal.
Researchers from West Virginia University and PRIO recently received funding from the National Science Foundation to collect a global dataset covering transitional justice processes implemented during civil wars from 1946 to 2010.
