Reconstruction for Peace

Press/Media: Research


Led by Dr Richard Haigh from DRC, Reconstruction for Peace is a one year programme of research and capacity building that seeks to explore the interaction between youth and infrastructure reconstruction programmes in the North and East of Sri Lanka as a means to prevent future conflict in the region.

The Salford team (Dr Richard Haigh, Professor Dilanthi Amaratunga & Professor Martin Hall) will work with colleagues from Sri Lankan Universities (Colombo, Jaffna, and Eastern University) on the project examining: how reconstruction programmes engage, employ, connect and divide youth in the region; the extent to which inequality in access to infrastructure affects social cohesion among youth and the factors of infrastructure reconstruction programmes that are most sensitive to impacting conflict prevention.
