GPS Policy Brief
Friday, we got to know that a large project has been funded by the Research Council of Norway's INFRASTRUKTUR initiative, that aims to build up relevant, up-to-date infrastructure that is accessible to the research community, to various private and public sector user groups, and to the general public.
We invite submissions of abstracts for a proposed session at the 19th IMISCOE Annual Conference in Oslo, on migrant-host interactions in the Global South.
What about conflict drives some people to move, while others stay behind? Proposed session for the Annual Meeting of American Geographers 2022, on the geographies of migration during conflict and the dynamics of migration-decision making in conflict settings.
The P3A project will advance the understanding of how, and under what conditions, private sector development exacerbates or mitigates conflict in Africa.
This is one out of five PRIO projects that today have received funding from the Research Council of Norway.
Round two of conflict prediction in the Conflict Cartographer project is now open. Country and area experts are invited to add their conflict predictions using the project app. The project focuses on 35 countries in Africa that have experienced conflict within the past five years.
Join the winter seminar in human geography session on geographical
perspectives on migration and borders (Thursday 11 March 10.30-12.00
CET). The four presentations and introduction will focus less on border
control, but instead offer multiple views on borders &
boundary-making in relation to migration, and to geographical research
PRIO has conducted a study for Save the Children estimating the number of children at risk of experiencing wartime sexual violence. A staggering 72 million children—17% of the 426 million children living in conflict areas globally, or 1 in 6—are living near armed groups that have been reported to perpetrate sexual violence against children.
Save the Children has released its 2020 report on children in conflict. PRIO researchers have contributed to the report three years in a row. In 2020 Gudrun Østby, Siri Aas Rustad and Andreas Forø Tollefsen all lent their expertise again.
The Research School on Peace and Conflict invites applications for the PhD course "GIS and the Geography of Armed Conflict: Applying Geographical Information Systems (GIS) and georeferenced data for Peace and Conflict Research" to take place at NTNU in Trondheim on 15-19 June 2020. The course is organized in collaboration with the University of Oslo and PRIO.
The deadline for applications is 30 April 2020.
