Workshop on civilian activism in civil wars

On 22-23 February 2018 I host a workshop on civilian activism in civil wars at the University of Konstanz. This workshop facilitates the discussion and exchange of research that focus on different aspects of civilian activism in a civil war context. External participants include Isak Svensson, Espen Rød, Juan Masullo and Jürgen Brandsch.

I present a paper with Sebastian Hellmeier called “The Microfoundations of Political Jiu Jitsu: Ideas for a Survey Experiment” at the Brown Bag Meeting in Konstanz, 2 February 2018.

I’m back in Konstanz and take the position of a visiting professorial research fellow. I’m teaching seminars on “Introduction to International Administration and Conflict Management”, “Religion and Conflict”, and a “Colloquium” for BA and MA students.

I present a paper called “Raise your voices! The occurrence of non-violent action in civil wars” (with Roman Krtsch) at the AFK Methods Workshop in Mannheim, 9-10 October 2017.

I present a paper called “Raise your voices! The occurrence of non-violent action in civil wars” (with Roman Krtsch) at the DVPW IR Workshop in Bremen, 4-6 October 2017.

Together with Roos van der Haer and Nils Weidmann, I published a call for papers for a special issue on “Studying Micro Dynamics in Civil Wars” (ZeFKO_CfP)

I present a paper called “For what it’s worth! Explaining the link between protest goals and protest tactics in post-conflict Nepal” at the workshop “New perspective on micro-dynamics of political violence” in Konstanz, 21-22 September 2017.
