Sectarianism, Proxies and De-sectarianisation (SEPAD)

Activity: Participating in or organising an eventConference


SEPAD's annual conference, to be held on the 15-16th December at Lancaster University, seeks to build on the existing scholarship that reflects on how particular forms of identity (sectarianism, nationalism, tribalism, ethnicity, and ideology) relate to states, society, urban life, and regional politics. In doing so, it aims to highlight the notion of 'belonging' as a theatre in which these different facets interact. Such issues have taken on increased importance in recent years amidst a rising number of displacements from conflict, environmental change, or sovereign power, along with protest against the dominance of corrupt elites in several states, meaning that questions about what it means to belong – and what to belong to – become increasingly important.
