Course designed for the Forum ZFD Balkans Staff
November 18-20, 2013
CFCCS was invited to design and deliver a training seminar for the Forum ZFD Balkans Staff who will be working on the Dealing with the Past projects. The course aimed to enhance the theoretical and practical understanding of the participants, as related to their work focus in Dealing with the Past and Memory Work. It also aimed to strengthen and deepen the understanding of the participants as related to:
- bridging theory and conflict;
- framing Dealing with the Past in the context of Conflict Analysis, Conflict Transformation and Memory Studies frameworks.
The seminar training was taught by Dr. Orli Fridman and was attended by 17 staff members from the Forum ZFD's offices in Belgrade, Prishtina, Sarajevo and Skopje.
The Center for Comparative Conflict Studies (CFCCS) is currently engaged in British Academy Project, entitled "On the Receiving End: towards more critical and inclusive perspectives on international intervention" which aims at building a teaching and and research partnership between the University of Surrey in Guildford in the UK, Birzeit University in Palestine and CFCCS at the Belgrade Faculty of Media and Communications (FMK).
This project was initiated by the Center for International Intervention (cii) at University of Surrey and further elaborated in cooperation with Birzet University and CFCCS as a project supporting critical work on international intervention. It will look at the modalities of international intervention, as seen by those who have experienced intervention and the views of policy makers in UK. For more information visit the cii website.
At the end of January 2013 we hosted our first Junior Scholars Seminar. Eleven PhD students attended the seminar, and presented their research receiving feedback and generating a discussion about their topics, research questions and methodology. Click here for more information.
