Conflict, Crisis, Social Resilience
What does ongoing or recent conflict mean to the processes of social resilience? What are the compounded risks resulting from climate change and contributing to conflict? How far can the concept of crisis take us in order to understand the hardships of violent urban settlements? And how do youth navigate within peacebuilding paradigms in post-conflict areas?

Webinar series on social resilience
This webinar series is the result of a collaboration between the Society for Critical Studies of Crisis (SCSC) and the Social Resilience Theme launched by the Faculty of Social Sciences at Lund University.
With the series, we wish to promote the development of critical scholarship and establish an interdisciplinary network of scholars interested in pursuing research on social resilience in crisis times.
In the two webinars in fall 2022 Swedish and international scholars will discuss crisis and social resilience in relation to the topics of Conflict and Law and Justice.
