Update March 2010
The first meeting of the SIG was held in the School of Sociology, Social Policy and Social Work on 18th March. Group members discussed their research interests and decided on a programme of events for the forthcoming semester. The Group decided to meet every six weeks in the first instance and to use the opportunity to discuss their research and gain feedback from group members.
The next meeting of the SIG will take place in the Meeting Room at the School of Sociology, Social Policy and Social Work at 1.00pm on Thursday 6th May** (coffee/sandwiches will be available from 12.30). Madeleine Leonard and Martina McKnight will present some of the preliminary findings of their current research into young people’s views of growing up in post-conflict Belfast as part of the ESRC funded project Contested Cities and the Contested State www.conflictincities.org . For catering purposes anyone wishing to attend should contact firstname.lastname@example.org
