Round Table «Studying Peace in and with Central Eurasia. Starting from Local and Trans-Local Perspectives»

Round Table «Studying Peace in and with Central Eurasia. Starting from Local and Trans-Local Perspectives»

On 16 February 2021, Saint-Petersburg School of Social Sciences and Area Studies (HSE University, St Petersburg) invites you to the online round table «Studying Peace in and with Central Eurasia. Starting from Local and Trans-Local Perspectives». This public event is organized by the MA programme «Comparative Politics of Eurasia» and by the new MA Programme «Comparative Russian and Eurasian Politics» (double degree of HSE University St. Petersburg and University College London).

In view of a crisis of liberal universalism peace research must reflect on how it is perceived, how peace is constructed in other places and how it can cope with diversity in ordering and peacebuilding. This round table is grounded in a Special Issue of the «Journal of Intervention and Statebuilding» that attempts to search for starting points for peace research in and with Central Eurasia.

Anna Kreikemeyer – the guest editor of this Special Issue – will introduce her concept of studying local ordering and peace formation by ethnographic methodologies. It starts from the local everyday and takes an interest in how actors and institutions in concrete places and multiple socio-spatial configurations navigate conflict and peace. This introduction will be followed by three fieldwork-based contributions that will discuss findings on the role of women in peacebuilding in Kyrgyzstan (Aksana Ismailbekova), on conflict management from the ground up in Tajikistan (Karolina Kluczewska) and on everyday peace between Armenians and Azerbaijanis in Georgia (Vadim Romashov). 


About the speakers:
 

Anna Kreikemeyer is a researcher at the Institute for Peace Research and Security Policy at the University of Hamburg. She is particularly interested in issues of local peace, in the post-liberal debate on peacebuilding and in the prospects for peace research in Europe and Eurasia. 

Aksana Ismailbekova completed her dissertation at the Max Planck Institute for Social Anthropology, Halle, Germany. Based on her PhD dissertation, she wrote her monograph Blood Ties and the Native Son: Poetics of Patronage in Kyrgyzstan, which was published by Indiana University Press in 2017.  Ismailbekova is a research fellow at Leibniz-Zentrum-Moderner Orient (ZMO). Her research work focuses on kinship, ethnicity, patronage, conflict and gender in Kyrgyzstan. 

Karolina Kluczewska is a postdoctoral research fellow at the Käte Hamburger Kolleg/Centre for Global Cooperation Research, University of Duisburg-Essen in Germany. She holds a PhD degree in International Relations from the University of St Andrews in the United Kingdom. Her research investigates development aid and localisation of global governance frameworks in Tajikistan, in particular in the field of migration and healthcare. It appeared in the Journal of Intervention and Statebuilding, Journal of Civil Society, Journal of Ethnic and Migration Studies and Central Asian Survey. 

Vadim Romashov is a doctoral researcher in peace and conflict studies at Tampere Peace Research Institute (TAPRI), Faculty of Social Sciences, Tampere University. He is currently finalizing his doctoral research on everyday co-living of Armenians and Azerbaijanis in rural areas of Georgia. His research interests include everyday peace and conflict in diverse communities, alternative peace processes, and agonistic politics.
