The role of higher education in post-conflict reconstruction
Research Project Description
My research seeks to analyze the role that universities play in the reconstruction processes that follow conflict. In particular, it examines how universities in post-conflict countries influence, and are influenced by, the discourses, policies, and practices around human capital building, social reconciliation, and democratisation.
The research is funded by a Perfect Storm Leverhulme Doctoral Scholarship.
