AHRC/DFG grant awarded to GCILS

Professor Robin Geiß (PI), Dr Giedre Jokubauskaite (Co-I) and Dr Alsi Olcay (Co-I) have received a prestigious research grant (£350k) from the AHRC/DFG (UK Arts and Humanities Research Council/ Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft [German Research Foundation]) Funding Initiative in the Humanities in support of their project "The Law of Protracted Armed Conflict: Overcoming the Humanitarian-Development Divide". In collaboration with Freie Universität Berlin, they will research the humanitarian-development nexus in the context of protracted armed conflicts.

The project promises to make fundamental advances towards the operationalisation of the humanitarian-development nexus in the pursuit of sustainable peace, by examining how an integrated and sustainable humanitarian and development response can be anchored in and promoted by international law.
