Kai Merkel (PhD candidate, GSDS University of Konstanz)

My PhD project aims to investigate from a civilian perspective (micro-level) and from an organizational perspective (meso-level) how mobilization and facilitation of nonviolent events is feasible in a civil war environment. To answer these questions, this project aims to establish a disaggregated quantitative dataset on nonviolent events during the Nepalese Civil War, timeframe 1996-2006.
