Neon sign saying 'Do something great'

The Political Violence, Conflict and Transnational Activism Working Group is looking for at least one new convener. Conveners organise events, coordinate submissions for the annual conference, and help build the community of research around our group's themes. We are looking for committed academics who can take the group forward from summer 2023 onwards: to ensure continuity, we are staggering the transition process from the group's founders, so one of the conveners will step down while the other will continue for a further year. We are open to more than one person taking on the role, in order to spread the workload, but at least one needs to be a permanent member of staff based in a UK Higher Education Institute. We value diversity in terms of gender, race, and disability, so particularly encourage underrepresented members of the academic community to apply.
