ipb Jahrestagung 2023: Social Movement and Conflict Research in Dialogue

Social Movement & Conflict Research in DialogueInterdisciplinary Perspectives on Violence, Resistance & Mobilisation

This year’s annual conference of the Institute for Social Movement and Protest Studies (ipb) is dedicated to exploring the intersections of peace and conflict studies and social movement studies in the context of radical politics and (non)violent resistance. Together with the INTERACT Center for Interdisciplinary Peace and Conflict Research we hope to explore to what extent both fields and their conceptual repertoires and methodological toolkits may benefit from and complement each other. The aim is explicitly not to contrast the two fields and their approaches, nor to contribute to the reification of disciplinary boundaries and cleavages. Rather, with this conference we intend to provide an occasion for interdisciplinary exchange and foster dialogue between researchers with, at times, different perspectives on remarkably similar subjects.

We thus welcome submissions from scholars and practitioners working in the fields of both peace and conflict studies as well as social movement studies. Please review our guidelines and submit your paper/panel by 31 March 2023.
