2015 SCID Symposium – Dr Eleanor Gordon – Bridging the Gap: Conducting Research and Working in Conflict-Affected Environments

PowerPoint presentation: Eleanor Gordon SCID Symposium presentation 2015

In this presentation, Eleanor Gordon provides an overview of some of the requisite skills and guiding principles that those conducting research and working in conflict-affected environments might share. The presentation also details some of the lessons learned that can be shared between academic researchers and practitioners. By sharing these lessons and otherwise bridging the gap between the worlds of academia and practice, it is argued that efforts to better understand and, thus, respond to the challenges of conflict and peacebuilding can be found.

Dr Eleanor Gordon is a Lecturer in Conflict and Security Studies. She developed and delivers the distance-learning MSc in Security, Conflict and International Development (SCID) offered by the Department of Criminology at the University of Leicester. She has worked for over 15 years in the field of international security, justice and human rights, including 10 years in post-conflict environments with the UN and other organisations.
