Methods, Career and Networking Cafe
As in previous years, the BSF Academic Event will be complemented by a Methods, Career and Networking Café. It is an innovative type of conference session led by senior scholars aimed at engaging participants in informal and unstructured yet focused discussions about research methods, academic network-building, publishing at early career stages, etc.
This year’s Methods, Careers and Networking Café will consist of three tables led by:
- Roger Mac Ginty, Professor of Defence, Development and Diplomacy at the School of Government and International Affairs at Durham University – The Perils, Opportunities and Fun of Field Research in Conflict-affected Areas: The Everyday Peace Indicators Project – Focus Groups, Surveys and Feeding Back to Local Communities;
- Morten Bøås, Research Professor at the Norwegian Institute of International Affairs (NUPI) – Fieldwork as a method in IR;
- Jozef Bátora, Professor at the Department of Political Science at Comenius University in Bratislava and at IR Department, Webster Vienna Private University – Career Advice to Emerging IR Scholars from Central and Eastern Europe;
- Rok Župančić, Assistant Professor at the University of Ljubljana, Faculty of Social Sciences – Strengthening European integration through the analysis of conflict discourses: revisiting the past, anticipating the future (methodological approach of a H2020 research project).
