Internalities: political action and conflict within state boundaries

This event will be in Zoom

The third panel of our 2021 Conference Series will examine the internal politics of states, whether this be in the context of political movements or peacebuilding within a state’s formally-recognised territory. Through this we see international themes in a ‘domestic’ context, all with an extensive empirical focus.
