Spaces of peace, conflict and crisis
Research in this theme recognises the spatial dimensions of conflict and societies affected by crisis, using a diversity of analytical approaches, from geographic information systems (GIS) to the arts.
It explores how people experience and navigate disasters, violence, and emergency, and how these experiences are shaped by their identities, by the opportunities and challenges of displacement, and in their roles as economic, social, and political agents.
This research stream also considers how physical and digital infrastructures influence the way individuals and institutions engage with each other in times of upheaval.
