The Noragric led, NFR funded project invites academics, policymakers, and others interested in Pakistan, gender, human security and development to a one-day seminar. Venue: Serena Hotel Islamabad, Sheesh Mahal-2
The seminar will be organized in two parts. In the first part of the seminar, some of the key findings from the three-year research program will be shared. The research project focuses on the postconflict case of the Swat Valley in northwestern Pakistan. Taking a broad human security perspective, the research has studied post-crisis development in Swat with particular attention to uncovering women and men’s different experiences and understandings of insecurity, vulnerability, and development, analyzing how these relate to security and development discourses, policies and practice in post-conflict situations.
The second part of the seminar will offer reflection on how this research has impacted research competence and capacity at CIIT, as well as wider development in the area. As a part of the Norwegian Research Council’s NORGLOBAL program, the project had as an important aim to support research competence-building in the South, and link research more directly to societal challenges.
The seminar will end with a panel discussion of the implications of this research to development policy and practice with representatives from the government, academia, humanitarian organizations and NGO community. We will provide time and opportunity for networking! Please find attached the preliminary program, the final program will be provided as soon as it is ready.
