Moderation Session with Professor Roger Mac Ginty
Location: Online Teams Meeting
Time: From 20:00 to 21:00
We are honored to host Professor Roger Mac Ginty, a distinguished scholar renowned for his expertise in conflict studies. Professor Mac Ginty holds the position of Professor in the School of Government and International Affairs at Durham University, serves as the Editor of the esteemed journal Peacebuilding (alongside Oliver Richmond), and is the Founder of the Everyday Peace Indicators (everydaypeaceindicators.org). He is also the Editor of the “Rethinking Political Violence” book series with Palgrave Macmillan.
During this 45-minute session, you’ll have a unique opportunity to engage in a discussion with Professor Mac Ginty focused on his article, “Everyday peace: Bottom-up and local agency in conflict-affected societies.” This article, published in Security Dialogue (Vol. 45, No. 6), promises to inspire thoughtful conversations about peace, agency, and conflict resolution.
