3rd NASP International Workshop on Conflicts and Institutions - Genoa, 26/6/18

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

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. 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). It gratefully acknowledges the fundamental support from the Compagnia di San Paolo.

Participants will have to circulate their papers by the 15th of June 2018.

The workshop will cover the costs of lodging (and the social dinner) for the paper-givers. Travel costs are not included.
