Graduate Programme

Click here for informationa about the Conflict in Cities Graduate Workshop, 25-26th November

The Graduate Programme was a fundamental part of the Conflict in Cities project on three counts:  First, through graduate dissertations the project extended the range of in-depth studies of cities covered thus providing a broader empirical base upon which general patterns could be discerned.  Secondly, the interactions and intellectual synergy between the graduate students, the research assistants, project partners and team investigators contributed towards delineating a methodological framework for the study of conflict in cities that encompassed a range of disciplines. Finally, the involvement of graduates in the project assisted in the establishment of a cohort of researchers trained in an inter-disciplinary environment which laid the foundations for future work and dissemination.
In order to achieve these aims the project  provided an “enhanced” Graduate programme to including graduate workshops, attendance at the initial project workshop , attendance at the International Conference in Belfast and, the opportunity to attend the project workshops.  In addition, students gained access to project investigators, the Research Associates, and became part of the publication plans of the project ranging from submission of Working Papers, workshop papers and the publications of their theses as books.

Recognising these factors the ESRC and the collaborating Universities agreed to generously fund seven PhD studentships – 3 by the ESRC, 2 by Queen’s Belfast, 1 each by Exeter and Clare College, Cambridge. Interviews were held in Chatham House on 1st February, and 7 applicants were selected. Most of these applicants have now completed their PhDs
