SAMEVAL network activities and PhD courses - PRIO Conflict Patterns Research Group

Alternative title: SAMEVAL-nettverkaktiviteter og PhD-kurs - PRIO Conflict Patterns Research Group

Awarded: NOK 1.6 mill.

The Conflict Patterns Research Group (CPRG) at the Peace Research Institute Oslo (PRIO), led by Research Professor Gudrun Østby, is a world-leading research environment studying the immediate and long-term consequences of armed conflict using advanced and innovative quantitative methods. The present project aims to promote the further development of the CPRG by providing support for the group to organise and participate in network-related activities and run international PhD courses. The project will provide support for organising and participating in workshops and conferences, and for the development of research proposals aimed at international funders. These activities will contribute to the development of new research programmes in the CPRG. They will also contribute to the cultivation and maintenance of key networks within and outside the research community, supporting future collaboration, recruitment and impact. The project will also provide support for regular PhD courses on topics based on the core methodological and thematic competencies of the CPRG, taught by members of the research group. The courses are part of the Research School on Peace and Conflict. The courses are intensive, five-day workshops with active student participation, open to PhD students from anywhere in the world. The CPRG's contribution to the Research School is an important investment in the future of the field of conflict studies.
