TraCe featured in PRIF Review

Summary of TraCe activities in 2022

The new PRIF Review 2022 is online and presents the research center "Trans­formations of Political Violence (TraCe)". The detailed feature addresses not only the partner institutions and goals of the re­search center, but also the various research areas, past activities, and publications. As such, TraCe's re­search premises are summarized in the first working paper as well as the first pod­cast episode with Prof. Dr Astrid Erll and Prof. Dr Christopher Daase, TraCe spokes­persons in the first year of the project, in which they talk about the im­portance of interdisciplinary research on violence. Moreover, the first lecture series in Marburg in the winter semester 2022/2023 is pre­sented, in wich different perspectives on the trans­formation of political violence were dis­cussed and can be re-watched on YouTube. Lastly, the Feature presents the TraCe Kick-Off on the Russian in­vasion of Ukraine, in which representatives from politics, academia and civil society discussed the im­plications for political violence in December 2022 at the Hessian State Representation in Berlin.

This year, for the first time, the PRIF Annual Report has been published bilingually in English and German and presents topics from on­going and completed research projects of the Peace Research Institute Frankfurt. It is now available online.
