Abstract:

Peace and Conflict Studies was broadly founded in the Northern Hemisphere, leading to prescriptive and descriptive epistemologies of how scholars understand patterns of peace or violence in Europe and the Global North via a core-periphery relationship with the Global South. The rejection of ideas like Third Worldism on the international stage, after decolonisation by the Global North, has led to the implicit strengthening of asymmetric colonial power structures in the way knowledge about peace, security, development and order has been produced. Thus, there is a need to set a different agenda in PACS that takes cognisance of the grounded and global scale realities and asymmetries – political, economic, and social – of the Global South. This panel intends to, firstly, address these gaps and contribute to an emerging research agenda outlining the different trajectories of conflict and violence, justice and peace both in the Global South and North. Specifically, the panel wants to also, secondly, discuss the specific impact which the Covid-19 pandemic had on epistemic hierarchies and knowledge production in the Global South. Thus, the panel aims to establish the comparative parameters of debates about peace and war in a thorough academic discussion not only ABOUT but WITH the Global South.
