Professor Roger Mac Ginty joined the University of Manchester in 2012 as Professor of Peace and Conflict Studies at the Humanitarian and Conflict Response Institute (HCRI) and the Department of Politics.
He is editor (with Professor Oliver Richmond) of the new Taylor and Francis journal Peacebuilding and is currently editing the Handbook on Peacebuilding for Routledge. He is also working on an EU FP7 project ‘Cultures of governance and conflict resolution in India and the EU’. He edits the Rethinking Political Violence book series with Palgrave. His latest book is International Peacebuilding and Local Resistance.
In this inaugural lecture Professor Roger Mac Ginty focuses on the conflict avoiding and reconciliation practices used in everyday life in deeply divided societies. Based on fieldwork, this lecture will offer an alternative to the emphasis on top-down interventions by professional conflict resolution ‘experts’ and considers how everyday peace skills can help prevent a divided society from tipping over into civil war.
