Transitions and Social Cohesion in Context of Multiple Crises

GSP is expanding its successful cooperation with Freie Universität Berlin's Institute for Latin American Studies.
Together with Professor Sérgio Costa and Dr Jan Boesten, the CONPEACE team has set up a cooperation group of the Berlin University Alliance/University of Oxford Centre for Advanced Studies (Grand Challenge Initiative Social Cohesion).
The team of researchers involved will be examining social cohesion in the everchanging contexts of multiple crises occurring globally with a particular focus on the broader region of Latin America and its borderlands. New survey experiments are being produced in Colombia, Venezuela, and Trinidad & Tobago primarily focusing on understandings of contexts influenced by factors such as the COVID-19 pandemic, refugee crises and drug cartels. This research will allow for broader generalisations to be drawn regarding the global context of other refugee crises in cross-border areas such as Afghanistan, and Myanmar.
