6th Workshop on Conflict Dynamics

We invite you to submit an abstract for the 6th Workshop on Conflict Dynamics, to be held at Nuffield College, University of Oxford, on 05–06 September 2022.

The Workshop on Conflict Dynamics is independently organised by junior scholars for junior scholars. Our aim is to bring together early career researchers working on armed conflict, broadly defined, to discuss and receive feedback on their research from their peers and senior researchers in an environment that fosters cooperation and support among a community of scholars. We encourage applications from graduate students and junior scholars who want to present work in progress (preference will be given to projects in their early stages, such as a working paper or a thesis chapter) and to engage with the work of their peers through discussion and feedback over the two day workshop.

Since 2017, our workshop has provided a forum that enables extended and in-depth reflection on work in progress among early career researchers working on similar topics and with similar research interests. Each presenter will have 15 minutes to present, 15 minutes for feedback from the discussant and 15 minutes for feedback from the audience. The workshop will also include expert roundtable discussions on topics of interest to conflict scholars and on professional development, as well as opportunities for networking with a workshop dinner at Nuffield College on Monday evening. Following our successful ‘Pass it On’ sessions in the previous two workshops, we will continue to run this event designed to facilitate the exchange of expertise and experience between our participants. You can see the programmes from our previous workshops here: 

Please submit your application here. The deadline is 20 March 2022. We're very much looking forward to receiving your submissions!

We will inform you about the outcome of your application by 29 April 2022. Participants will be requested to submit their paper two weeks in advance (22 August 2022) to give the discussant time to prepare feedback and to allow all participants to read the papers.

Please note that we are currently unable to assist participants with travel and accommodation expenses, and participants are responsible for making their own travel arrangements. Successful applicants are encouraged to apply to their home institutions for financial support. There is no fee to participate in the workshop, and lunch, coffee breaks and the workshop dinner will be provided without charge. The organisers can provide assistance with finding accommodation in Oxford and will provide letters of invitation if a visa is required.
