‘Bridging ‘Post-Brexit’ Societal Divisions – Learning from Civil Society Initiatives in Bosnia & Herzegovina or Kosovo’ is the topic of a fully funded, full-time PhD studentship. The closing date for applications is 18 April 2017.
This project investigates the transferability of educationally innovative tools for recognising and bridging societal divides and counteracting hate speech which have been developed and applied in Bosnia-Herzegovina (BiH) and Kosovo after the wars in the 1990s. In reversing the usual west-east knowledge transfer, the project focusses on selected civil society initiatives in either BiH or Kosovo, which created tools of conflict transformation that foster the recognition, appreciation and humanisation of ethnic and social differences. It asks whether these can, and should, be made available in a ‘post-Brexit’ UK.
The project forms part of the Conflict Transformation Studies Group activities.
This is a fully-funded PhD studentship which includes a stipend of £14,000 each year to support your living costs. More information and how to apply
