We OPEN up questions and ‘translatability’ of practices to different contexts.

We ENGAGE in ongoing critical reflection on the internal dynamics of the network as it employs conflict transformation strategies also to work collaboratively. The synthesis of findings, and divergence of approaches, will offer innovative insights in relation to theoretical, methodological and policy-oriented questions.

We DRAW together expertise from a range of disciplines (i.e. theatre studies; arts practice; languages, literature and cultural studies; gender studies; anthropology; sociology; postcolonial studies)

We BUILD on on and expands established academic and non-academic collaborations with a range of partners based in fragile contexts and contexts of conflict and protracted crisis.
