What happens when 9 NYU master’s students (8 from CGA and 1 from NYU Wagner) and 9 master’s students from the University of Duhok spend 6 months designing, devising, and carrying out joint research projects in peacebuilding in the Kurdistan region of Iraq? Not only do cultural, linguistic, logistical and academic obstacles rise and fall, but everyone involved learns valuable lessons about the power (and problems) of networks in cross-cultural social science research. Join faculty and students returning from this program to discuss potential for and limitations of the NYU-University of Duhok peacebuilding network.
