Experience of Violence, Trauma Relief and Commemorative Culture – Cooperative Research Projects on the Arab Region

Volkswagen Foundation

The processes of transformation and transition that started in 2011 and have since characterized the situation in many Arab states have already led to significant changes in the region – and continue to cause considerable, increasingly severe tensions. Now, four years after the beginning of the uprisings, the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) is still undergoing radical change and the political and social situation in many of its states is fragile. These current developments offer an extensive breadth of potential research questions, the exploration of which the Foundation would like to support. Apart from gaining new insights into the current processes of transformation this call aims to support the establishment of academic networks as well as the formation of junior scholars – especially in the MENA-region. The call is generally open to researchers from the humanities and social sciences. Besides one scholar based at a German institution, research teams must also include at least one scholar based in the MENA-region.
