Research Group Kurtenbach

We conduct research on the consequences and interactions between violence and political institutions, particularly in the context of post-conflict societies. We are interested in different perspectives on and understandings of peace, institutions of conflict transformation, changes in violence, and especially their significance for women and youth.

Currently, we are focusing our research on Latin America, especially Colombia and El Salvador, but also on selected countries in the MENA region and Sub-Saharan Africa.

In addition to Prof. Dr. Sabine Kurtenbach the research team consists of Asma Khalifa, Viviana Garcia Pinzón, José Salguero, Désirée Reder and Ana Soares.
