There is an exciting opportunity to hear Professor Colin MacGinty of Manchester University give a talk on Peace and Neighbourhoods at the Flodden Peace Centre at Crookham on Monday, April 28 at 7.30pm.
He is Professor of Peace and Conflict Studies at the Humanitarian and Conflict Response Institute, and the Department of Politics.
His research has been on comparative research into peace processes, political violence, and local responses to international peace-support interventions.
He has conducted field research in Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia, Georgia, Jordan, Kosovo, Lebanon, Sri Lanka and the US.
Over the past few years he has been working on conflict resolution in India and the EU.
He has also been using the notion of ‘hybridity’ as a way of capturing the fluid nature of transitions away from conflict.
He is currently researching everyday peace indicators with colleagues at the University of Notre Dame and the Institute for Justice and Reconciliation.
This is an excellent opportunity to meet and hear such a significant figure in the intimate rural setting of the Flodden Peace Centre
Admission is free, but there will be an opportunity to make a donation to the ongoing work of the peace centre. Light refreshments will be served, and there will be a guided tour of the Peace Garden.
The event is part of an ongoing series of events at the Flodden Peace Centre in Crookham. For further details please go to www.flodden1513.com or to Flodden Peace Centre on Facebook.
