About this workshop
The workshop will start with a panel by the research team about the project’s conceptual framework and research design. The remainder of the workshop will be structured as a series of presentations and roundtable discussions that examine life and movement in the region.
The workshop aims to:
- assess the state of the art research on life and movement in the African Great Lakes Region, with an emphasis on the Democratic Republic of Congo
- interrogate and nuance the crisis and displacement frameworks, which dominate research in the region
- discuss potential methods and methodologies best suited to examine complex life dynamics in the context of crisis and conflict
