Management and War: How Organisations Navigate Conflict and Build Peace

Description: War and conflict are a reality of life throughout the world. While much is written about the impact of violence and disorder, how people and organisations adapt to these environments is still poorly understood. This seminar will look at the often hidden story of organisational actors managing through and beyond violent conflict, building businesses, delivering services and navigating change processes in environments of violence and peacebuilding. In this, it argues that ethno-political conflict and war are organisational as well as a political processes, and that moving beyond conflict cannot be successfully achieved without a recognition of organisational actors as key to that resolution process. The seminar will draw on data from three cases: Northern Ireland, The Basque Country and Bosnia.
