About the conference
The conference will be held from 29th to 30th August 2018 at Karlstad university, in collaboration with the Malaviya Centre for Peace Research (MCPR) and the UNESCO Chair for Peace and Intercultural Understanding, Banaras Hindu University, as the third session in a series of conferences on Sweden and India.
The last two conferences, held at MCPR, Varanasi in April 2017, and in Karlstad June 2016, addressed the topic of Women, Activism and Politics, and marked the beginning of a mutually rewarding interaction between scholars, activists and politicians from Sweden and India. The June 2016 conference deliberations in Sweden and the April 2017 conference held in India have raised fresh issues and agendas that will be addressed in forthcoming conferences, as a part of our collaboration between the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences of Karlstad University and the UNESCO Chair for Peace and Intercultural Understanding and Malaviya Centre for Peace Research, Banaras Hindu University.
Registration page will be opened April 15, 2018.
