Postdoctoral Research Associate - Ref: 2040

(12 September 2012)

Durham University are seeking to appoint an outstanding candidate for a European Research Council funded project on the experience and meaning of citizenship for youth in three countries that have experienced division and conflict: South Africa, Bosnia-Herzegovina, and Lebanon. The project examines the efforts of international organisations, civil society organisations and states to foster citizenship amongst youth. The project’s critical intervention is in extending the analysis of these efforts to consider the ways in which youth interpret, experience, challenge, and potentially remake citizenship. The project examines the constructions of citizenship that travel through networks of states and international and civil society organisations and that are experienced and remade as youth move through their daily lives.
