Organising diversity is one of today’s main challenges. Ethnic, racial, religious, and cultural differences are on the agenda worldwide, often because of the violent conflicts that ensue. Why and how do these conflicts arise, where do these turn into bloodshed? What are the mechanisms for fostering stability and peace, both within and between states? How should we understand phenomena such as nationalism, federalism, multiculturalism and separatism? A multidisciplinary and international team of social scientists will work with you in order to clarify and explain these issues, each from his/her own expertise.
