The role of higher education in post-conflict reconstruction
Research Project Description
My research seeks to analyze the role that higher education plays 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.
