Call for papers by GIGA. The legacy of armed conflicts: Southern African and comparative perspectives

giga-logoThe German Institute of Global and Area Studies in cooperation with the Centre for the Study of Governance Innovation (GovInn) at the University of Pretoria invites submissions for a two-day workshop on the legacy of armed conflicts: Southern African and comparative perspectives. West African specialists are welcome to submit papers.

This event will bring together scholars based in Southern Africa and GIGA researchers in order to reflect on the legacy of conflicts for sustainable peace. They are particularly interested in contributions that focus on one of the three following topics and that are either based on intra-regional (between African cases) or cross regional (between Africa and other regions) comparison or that apply broader theories or concepts to South African or other African cases.

  • Peace processes and long-term peacebuilding
  • Former armed actors in post-conflict societies
  • Violence and trust in the aftermath of conflict
