The aim of my research project is to develop a deeper understanding of how information-gathering on crises and conflicts by international actors works. It looks into how international actors ‘learn’ about a conflict or a crisis and how the ways in which knowledge about conflict is produced, shapes what kind of knowledge becomes influential in policy design. In this way, my project interrogates the role of knowledge production in efforts to anticipate and respond preventively to man-made crises that are expected to escalate into large-scale atrocities and armed conflict.
