On November 24-25, 2022, project members of DIASCON Vadim Romashov and Anush Petrosyan participated in the Conference “Mobile Lives, Glocal Complexities” organized by the Society of Ethnic Relations and International Migration (ETMU). Partaking in the workshop on Activist research in practice: Methodological and ethical conversations, Romashov and Petrosyan presented the abstract of an upcoming paper about peacebuilding in the South Caucasus after the devastating Nagorno-Karabakh war in 2020, the existential crisis faced by the peacebuilding community and the growing need of a joint research-inspired peace movement, which would help transform the state of violence in the region.
A blogpost will soon follow on our website with more details about the transnationality of the peace activism in South Caucasus and beyond.
You can read more about the workshop and the abstract presented by our project members here.
