The three-day workshop will bring together twenty young Algerian, Libyan, Moroccan and Tunisian scholars researching the relationship between violence and a number of areas of inquiry including social change, political action, revolution and crime. Selected participants will work with international experts to hone the research design on a research project in its early stages of development. Day one will be dedicated to expert lectures focusing on the essential elements of research methodology and design. On day two and three, participants will present their proposals and discuss them with co-participants and experts to ensure that they receive ample feedback to fine-tune their proposals. Participants will also have a chance to discuss ways of incorporating the theoretical tools they acquired on day one into the research design of their respective research projects.
