PRFDHR Colloquium: Living in Impermanence, Rizvi Hassan

Life in a refugee camp is often seen as an impermanent thing, where in reality it actually becomes a big part of a refugee’s life. Inclusive and healthy environment in a camp is thus very important for the well-being of both the displaced and host communities. From 2018 to 2022, working with the Rohingya refugees as well as the surrounding Bangladeshi hosting communities in Ukhiya-Teknaf area, has never been about one particular space, but about collaborating together in a crisis situation to overcome the unexpected challenges over time.

PRFDHR Seminar: Revealing the space for peace agreements among parties in conflict, Professor Elisa Cavatorta

In this presentation, Professor Elisa Cavatorta develops a novel conjoint analysis to identify the potential for mutual gains among parties in conflict, and visualize the most desirable agreements in multi-attribute negotiations. Her approach elicits preferences over competing issues, evaluates the strength of support for a large number of peace agreements, visualizes the space for agreement: the set of mutually acceptable peace deals, and within that set identifies theoretical cooperative bargaining solutions. Public support for each agreement compared to the status quo is estimated.
