Knowledge Production in Times of Flight and War
Developing Common Grounds for Research in/on Syria
الإنتاج المعرفي في زمن الحرب واللجوء
تطوير ارضية مشتركة لمجال البحث في وحول سوريا
The war in Syria has resulted in the largest population exodus in recent global history. While the war continues, reconstruction efforts and debates around post-war (dis)orders are well under way. KnowWar critically examines the power nexus between war, warfare, flight, humanitarian programs, (forced) repatriation, and reconstruction in Syria and its repercussions in Lebanon. It works towards the development of transdisciplinary methodologies which allow a critical understanding of these conditions and discourses.
KnowWar (Knowledge Production in Times of Flight and War – Developing Common Grounds for Research in/on Syria) is funded by the Austrian Development Agency. The research project is a cooperation between the Department of Development Studies (DDS), University of Vienna, the Centre for Development Studies (CDS), Birzeit University (BZU), the NGO Mousawat, the Center for Peace Research and Peace Education (ZFF), Alps-Adriatic University Klagenfurt and the Syrian Center for Policy Research.
