Annual Conference 2019:
Rethinking Conflict Research and Practice in a Post-Liberal World
Sussex Centre for Conflict and Security Research
University of Sussex
September 8-10, 2019
The annual conference of the Conflict Research Society (CRS) will be hosted by the University of Sussex’s Centre for Conflict and Security Research on 8-10 September 2019. The call for papers has now closed and we would like to thank all those who have made a submission. This year there has been a substantial interest in the conference with a wide range of submissions from both academics and practitioners.
Registration closes 14 June 5pm. Please let the conference organiser, Robert Nagel firstname.lastname@example.org, know if you cannot register by this date for any reason or would like to withdraw. All paper-givers who have not registered by this date or not emailed, will not be included in the conference programme. We are sorry for any inconvenience this causes, but it is necessary in order to plan the programme in advance of the conference and communicate this to all delegates.
The CRS is working with VisitBrighton to facilitate finding accommodation.
Bookings can be made directly via this portal: https://book.passkey.com/go/rcr2019
Once finalized the conference programme will available here.
We are delighted to announce that our plenary speakers this year will include Funmi Olonisakin from King’s College London, Henrik Urdal Director of the Peace Research Institute Oslo, and the CRS book prize winner Christine Cheng from King’s College London for her book Extralegal Groups in Post-Conflict Liberia.
All delegates are expected to exchange their papers with their fellow panellists by no later than Friday 31st August. This is the responsibility of the panel chair to arrange in advance. We cannot make available all email addresses for delegates due to data protection, but these are generally available online.
Most panels will have between 3-5 paper-givers so the Conference Chairs recommend that presentations be kept to around 12-15 minutes each to allow time for discussant feedback and Q&A. All rooms will be fitted with audio-visual equipment, but please leave sufficient time to upload any presentations to the computer in advance. Please make sure to use a Windows file format to avoid any technical issues. If using a MAC
laptop please ensure that you have the necessary connection cables to connect to the projector.
