Connecting the home and the international: Circuitry as an analytical tool in peace and conflict studies

Friday 11 May 2018, 2.00PM to 4.00pm

Speaker(s): Professor Roger Mac Ginty, University of Manchester

Abstract:

Research interviews conducted by Mac Ginty and colleagues repeatedly mention the home and the immediate neighbourhood as a frame of reference when discussing peace, conflict and security. Yet IR has relatively little to say about the home and other intimate spaces. This paper seeks to connect the highly localised with the transnational and the international. It does so by suggesting that circuitry can be a useful analytical tool to help us connect the top-down and the bottom up. The paper draws on the on-going Everyday Peace Indicators project.

Hosted by the Security, Conflict and Justice pathway of the White Rose DTP
