Strengthening Academic Writing and Publishing Skills for ECRs in Madagascar: Researching the Environment, Peace and Conflict

Project status


This two-year programme builds on existing research networks around peacebuilding, conflict transformation, gender, environment, climate change, and sustainability. It draws on expertise from Madagascar, Europe and the UK. The activities aim to create a new network of scholars supporting early career researchers in Madagascar to strengthen their research skills, academic writing, publishing and grant writing expertise. Our focus is on social sciences. Peace and conflict studies is an emerging discipline in Madagascar. A number of scholars in anthropology, social sciences focus on this now particularly in relation to environment and conflict, and how this intersects with challenges of natural resource governance and gender equality. Priority research topics will also include conflict transformation, political transformation, climate justice and adaptation, as well as structural inequalities and interdisciplinary research. We will seek to target our call for applicants to ECRs interested in developing their research in this area.

Workshop Team: Dr Jessica Northey, Coventry University; Professor Jonah Ratsimbazafy, Antananarivo.
