The Civil War Paths project builds on the qualitative fieldwork centered on life history interviews that Dr Shesterinina has carried out on the Georgian-Abkhaz war of 1992-1993 and the Colombian peace process since the signing of the Final Agreement for Ending the Conflict and Building a Stable and Lasting Peace by the National Government and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia—People’s Army in 2016. Our research team is currently conducting fieldwork in Colombia, Lebanon, Nepal and South Sudan.
