CYPRUS AND DIVIDED SOCIETIES
Queen’s University Belfast, 21 May 2008
The International Politics and Ethnic Conflict Cluster and the Centre for Research in Political Psychology at Queen’s University Belfast will host a one-day multi-disciplinary workshop on Cyprus and Divided Societies on Wednesday 21 May 2008.
The workshop aims to bring together younger and more established researchers interested in factors and processes which facilitate or hinder the resolution of inter-group conflict in Cyprus with researchers who are working on similar issues in different societies. We invite papers from researchers working from different disciplinary perspectives. We especially welcome papers which focus on Cyprus and involve comparisons with other divided societies. We look forward to papers investigating the impact of Europeanization, media in divided societies, the role of religious actors, institutional design and social psychological dimensions of conflict. Comparative studies of Cyprus and Northern Ireland are particularly welcome.
Paper proposals (max. 300 words) should be sent by email to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than 17 March 2008. A panel will assess the paper proposals and successful applicants will be informed by 20 March.
The workshop will form a prelude to the Mitchell conference ‘Moving on from Conflict: Lessons from Northern Ireland’ on May 22-23 a key event celebrating the 10 year anniversary of the Belfast Agreement http://www.qub.ac.uk/sites/mitchellconference/.
