About the project
Research project Anxieties in cities of Southeast European post-conflict societies: Introducing an integrative approach to peacebuilding (AnxiousPeace) aims at answering adequately the question of how to reduce the ethnic distance between the people previously involved in armed conflicts and, overall, improve inter-ethnic relations in post-conflict societies. Using a novel interdisciplinary approach at the nexus of peacebuilding studies, social psychology, neurobiology, and body-oriented somatic approaches, AnxiousPeace will integrate the two research lines and break ground in the understanding of why inter-ethnic relations in post-conflict ’divided cities’ remain hostile and exhibit a high ethnic distance despite intense peacebuilding efforts, whereas in other cities in post-conflict society in question relations between the same ethnic groups can be peaceful and the ethnic distance low. Project is financed by Slovenian Research Agency (code N5–0178).
