Conflict in Cities project

vista6I was down in Cambridge last week to examine a very good PhD thesis by Konstantin Kastrissianakis in the Department of Architecture. The PhD was part of the Conflict in Cities programme, and looked at public space in Beirut. While there, Wendy Pullan, who led the Conflict in Cities research team, gave me a packet with their briefing papers in it. Very interesting reading – and you can download these for free, along with a series of working papers, from their website. The project looked at a number of cities alongside Beirut – Belfast, Berlin, Brussels, Jerusalem, Kirkuk, Mostar, Nicosia and Vukovar.
