These Working Papers are outputs of the ESRC-funded project "Conflict in Cities".

Overview of the Working Paper Series and Notes for Contributors

This peer-reviewed, electronic Series provides a quick outlet for 'work in progress’ by the Project team, and for invited papers by others

The Series is firstly a focus for the ongoing research of team members - for preparatory work, initial findings, and later for first drafts of specific Project publications. It encompasses multi-disciplinary contributions on Belfast, Jerusalem and other divided cities; and more general or theoretical contributions on ethno-national conflict and territorial and other divisions in urban settings. It can be used for interventions in current public or policy debates if and when appropriate.

It also publishes papers first presented in Project workshops, whether by team members or by invited participants; and papers on topics of relevance to the Project which others will be invited to contribute.

All papers are sent to at least two referees. Authors get constructive feedback and the Series allows relatively speedy dissemination of work to a wide potential readership.

With revisions, the papers may be published subsequently in other publication formats such as journal articles or book chapters. All invited contributors retain full copyright of their work.

The views expressed in Working Papers are those of the respective contributors and are not necessarily those of the Editors or the wider Project team.

The papers are available online in pdf format and can be accessed using Adobe Acrobat Reader [click here for free download].
