Conflict in Cities

Conflict in Cities and the Contested State:
Everyday life and the possibilities for transformation in Belfast, Jerusalem and other divided cities.

CIBR researchers have been awarded a £1.1 million grant to study divided world cities including Belfast as part of a five-year £3.2 million grant awarded by the Economic and Social Research Centre. Entitled Conflict in Cities and the Contested State, the Queens' team led by Professor Liam O'Dowd, School of Sociology, Social Policy and Social Work, and James Anderson, now Emeritus Professor of Political Geography, share a multi-disciplinary project that also involves the universities of Cambridge and Exeter.
