“Workshop: Inequalities, Peace, Conflict & Justice” was the continuation of a discussion that started in Stockholm in December which was co-sponsored by Lund University and the Swedish Institute and hosted by the SUITS. The first workshop addressed the themes of peace, institutions & actors; conflict & development; conflict & environment; and conflict & migration. The primary goal was to construct a better understanding of the challenges related to justice and create policy options to address these challenges.

Because of that fruitful discussion, the organising committee initiated a second workshop Istanbul, this time sponsored by Lund University and Friedrich Ebert Stiftung. The second workshop, “Inequalitites, Peace, Conflict & Justice”, included discussions of resistance & solidarity, labor, social welfare & social justice, and environmental justice.


Both workshops brought together early career and established academics, with 19 presenters. There are plans for publication of a book.
