Title: Consolidation Strategies of Ordering Actors in Cities: Urban Political Settlements in Syria and Yemen
Supervisors: Ravinder Bhavnani and Christiana Parreira
Expected completion date: 2026
My research investigates how and why actors in cities decide to transition in conditions of armed conflict to create political orders and provide governance whilst cooperating. I seek to scale down and dive into the micro-dynamics of conflict at the city level and explore the ordering processes of actors forming political settlements within them.
