PhD Studentship: Bridging ‘Post-Brexit’ Societal Divisions

Posted on March 24th, 2017 in UncategorizedRespond to this post »

Deadline: 18 April 2017 Open to: UK/EU and International students Scholarship:  GBP 14,000 per annum


This project investigates the transferability of educationally innovative tools for recognising and bridging societal divides and counteracting hate speech which have been developed and applied in Bosnia-Herzegovina (BiH) and Kosovo after the wars in the 1990s. In reversing the usual West-East knowledge transfer, the project focusses on selected civil society initiatives in either BiH or Kosovo, which created tools of conflict transformation that foster the recognition, appreciation and humanisation of ethnic and social differences. It asks whether these can, and should, be made available in a ‘post-Brexit’ UK.
