Zahra Hussain (Research Assistant on my AHRC-ESRC grant) Laajverd and PhD Postgraduate Durham University Friday 20th May 2016, Friday, 3pm – 6pm Venue TBC.
Zahra Hussain is the Research Assistant on Raina's AHRC-ESRC grant.

This workshop is aimed at developing participatory research methods and techniques for carrying out research in a particular post-conflict zone in Pakistan. The research is focused on understanding how Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) have endured conflict and crisis and how they are negotiating with reconstruction and rehabilitation of their social, economic and cultural lives. While in theory adaptation of research methods to the specific social, economic, political and cultural context of research sites are of primary importance to PAR, practical sides of adapting PAR to its geographical context poses a number of challenges. This workshop is a unique opportunity to develop PAR methods for a specific research context i.e. the Swat Valley, Khyber Pukhtunkhwa, Pakistan.
