This workshop inaugurates a network of early career social scientists researching the racial and gendered dynamics of migration and bordering in the Global South. It emerges in response to the ongoing situation of anti-black and anti-immigrant violence in Tunisia, precipitated by statements President Saied made calling for the deportation of sub-Saharan African migrants and stoking racial violence against them. As scholars of the region point out, racialized discourses regarding sub-Saharan migration are not new to Tunisia nor new to North Africa at large.

In this presentation, Professor Elisa Cavatorta develops a novel conjoint analysis to study the preferences and priorities of ordinary citizens regarding the components of potential peace agreements between people in conflict. Her application is the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. This approach elicits preferences over competing issues, reveals acceptable and unacceptable trade-offs and visualizes the Zone Of Possible Agreement (ZOPA): the set of mutually acceptable peace deals, and within that set identifies cooperative bargaining solutions.
