16 May 22 May – Tackling Religious Armed Conflicts
Religious armed conflicts – in particular Islamist conflicts – are on the rise. What implications does this give for conflict resolution? In this lecture, Professor Isak Svensson will discuss under what conditions conflicts fought under the banner of religion, can be brought to the negotiation table. Presenting the global patterns of armed conflicts in the world today, Professor Svensson will explain why religious dynamics complicates peaceful solutions, and what to do about it.
We are very pleased to present the speaker of this lecture, Isak Svensson, a well known scholar working with issues of conflict resolution. He has worked both in Sweden and abroad and is currently a professor at Uppsala University at the department of peace and conflict research. He is also author of books such as Ending Holy Wars: Religion and Conflict Resolution in Civil War and and numerous peer reviewed articles on the topic.
