NASP, in cooperation with the Department of Political Science of the University of Genoa, is pleased to announce the

3rd NASP International Workshop on Conflicts and Institutions
Call for Application

26 June 2018
Aula Mazzini
University of Genoa
Via Balbi, 5 - Genoa

 

The dramatic events and emergencies in the Mediterranean, Middle East, and North Africa region show us the need of understanding how the domestic institutions can influence violent conflicts and, conversely, how, these conflicts can affect the domestic institutions. The last two years the University of Genoa, in cooperation with NASP, organized the conference "Conflicts & Institutions: Research, Projects and Workshops" (2016, 2017). In continuity with those events also this year we have invited leading scholars in conflicts studies, democratization, peacebuilding and international security.

James Fearon (Stanford University), Sonia Lucarelli (University of Bologna), and Duncan Snidal (University of Oxford) will give keynote speeches.

The main goal of the workshop is still to specify the links and the connections between the ongoing crises and the current conflicts to examine the relation between institutions and conflicts. At the same time, the Project "Conflicts & Institutions" aims at creating a network of scholars able to elaborate common research projects and proposals.

The current project has been designed and coordinated by Giampiero Cama (University of Genoa), Andrea Ruggeri (University of Oxford), and Fabrizio Coticchia (University of Genoa).

The workshop is co-funded by the University of Genoa, the Department of Political Science (DISPO) and by NASP (Network for Advancement of Social and Political Studies).

Among several participants there will be: Stefano Costalli (University of Florence), Francesco N. Moro (University of Bologna), Vincenzo Bove (Warwick), Silvia D'Amato (University of Florence), Giampiero Cama (University of Genoa), Andrea Ruggeri (University of Oxford), Mara Morini (University of Genoa), and Fabrizio Coticchia (University of Genoa).

 

CALL FOR APPLICATION

Within the one-day event of lectures and seminars there will be a panel where PhD candidates, Post–Docs and Research Fellows will have the opportunity to present their research and the international scholars attending will serve as discussants.

Abstract (maximum 200 words), and a brief short bio, should be sent to Fabrizio Coticchia ( This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ) by the 19th of March 2018.
