GCDC Project-led Studentship - School of Politics and International Relations: Engaging Citizens in Post-Conflict Reconstruction
Applications are invited for an exciting PhD opportunity involving a collaboration between the Conflict Analysis Research Centre, at the University of Kent, UK and the Centre for Peace and Sustainable Development (SeeD) in Nicosia, Cyprus.
This project will:
• Identify the attributes and attitudes of citizens who are willing to participate in peace movements and post-conflict reconstruction in ODA countries.
• Explore the skills and competencies of these citizens
• Ask how skills, competencies and attitudes be developed in order to promote engaged citizens
• Employ data on citizen attitudes and behaviour drawn from a range of post-conflict settings
This project will be supervised by Professor Neophytos Loizides and Dr Edward Morgan-Jones in the Conflict Analysis Centre at the University of Kent as well as SEED expert Dr Ilke Dagli. Loizides and Morgan-Jones have extensive experience of supervising project addressing post-conflict reconstruction, and in employing comparative and quantitative methods. Dagli is Head of Programmes and Field Operations at SEED, an NGO that works with international development organisations, governments and civil society to design strategies for promoting peaceful, and resilient societies. The project will draw on data collected by SEED (currently operating in Cyprus, Ukraine, Moldova, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Liberia, Rwanda, South Sudan, Nepal, Malaysia, Timor Leste, Armenia, Iraq and Guatemala). SEED will also provide mentoring, support for field work, and enable engagement with impact partners.
