War & Society

The War & Society core team focuses on constantly renewing and pushing forward the research into the experiences and effects of wars and mass violence on societies and individuals, roughly from the beginning of the twentieth century to the present.

The team consists of a diverse group of NIOD researchers who, in addition to their own projects, cooperate on themes that have been identified collectively and are considered relevant for further exploration. This may result in conferences, workshops, fellowship programmes, or podcasts, ranging from internal discussions about the development of new research lines and projects to international meetings with colleagues and interested parties.

The War & Society core team believes that, when conducting research on war and mass violence, it is important for us to reflect on our own position and perspectives and find ways to account for them.

In recent years, the core team’s activities have ranged from an international conference on the theme of Negotiating Displacement (2019), setting up and developing its own NIOD podcast series (since 2018), experimenting with new, interactive forms of (virtual) workshops and meetings (since 2020), to having its own fellow group collaborate with NIAS on ‘Notes on a Research Agenda’ (2021).

Over the next few years, the War & Society team will continue to elaborate on the new ideas that have emerged from the cooperation with the fellow group, and to set up longreads, podcasts, and different kinds of workshops and meetings for both close colleagues and the general (international) public.
