IBEI hosts a Symposium on Micro-Dynamics of Armed Conflicts
Twenty-one scholars from all over the globe met from May 31st to June 1st, 2018 at IBEI for a Symposium on the Micro-Dynamics of Armed Conflicts.
In the panels they discussed issues as diverse as the provision (or non-provision) of public services by rebel organizations in armed conflicts, patterns of violence against civilians, or the internal dynamics of insurgent groups.
Oxford professor Stathis Kalyvas delivered the keynote speech “The Landscape of Political Violence”. In his talk he first developed a unifying typology of different forms of political violence, before identifying some connecting logics between the different types.
The symposium, which was organized by IBEI Research Fellow Martijn Vlaskamp as part of his Marie Curie project GLONEXACO (“The Global-Local Nexus of Armed Conflicts”), received funding from the Fritz Thyssen Foundation and the European Commission.
