Inspirational seminar on conflict and violence

Centre for Resolution of International Conflicts (CRIC) invites to a cross-disciplinary inspirational seminar on Violence and Conflict        

Monday 24th of March 2013, 13.30-16

Different academic disciplines imply divergent notions of how violence can be avoided or reduced. There is, therefore, good reasons to reflect upon how violence is understood in academic approaches. This inspirational seminar seeks to deepen our understanding of key insights concerning violence and to facilitate cross-disciplinary dialogue concerning challenges in understanding violence in conflicts.
