Term: August 1 – December 31, 2015

Financed by: Freie Universität Berlin

Principal Investigator: Jun.- Prof. Dr. Bettina Engels

Project Investigator: Melanie Müller

This project aims to contribute to the further development of intersectoral approaches by formulating empirically-grounded hypotheses and identifying the central elements of this research agenda through an analysis of the actor constellations, subjects of conflict and process dynamics in two case studies in sub-Saharan Africa. In doing so it focuses on the area of contemporary conflicts over mining.
