    Negotiating Relationships in Collective Memories of War and Narratives with Greta Uehling

    Negotiating Relationships in Collective Memories of War and Narratives with Greta Uehling

    Greta Lynn Uehling is the Author of Everyday War, a book resulting from her long-term research between 2015 and 2017 in Donbas, Ukraine. Greta is also a teaching Professor at the University of Michigan. Greta’s expertise includes international migration, human smuggling and trafficking, and refugee resettlement.

    This episode introduces a sequence where Greta presents her research findings while exploring the political conflict implications in the noncombatant relationships between Ukraine and Russian identities, all sharing internally displaced person spaces. Each one had to adopt survival strategies, some of which caused social and family fractures. But most importantly, ensuring they remain alive among the casualties of that war.

    A preventive conflict analysis: The status of the Liberian State with Baba Sillah and Ali Kaba

    A discussion journey, a simple preventive conflict analysis looking int to the status of the Liberian State.

    For that, there is nothing better than to explore one of the oldest democratic states ever built in Africa, questionably from scratch waiving local and regional threats because of the conflicts between Liberian natives and the Settlers, Americo-Liberian repatriates in the 1800s.

    Baba Sillah is a researcher in Global Studies at Sophia University, Tokyo, Japan. And Ali Kaba, a researcher in International Development at the American University.
