Young Researchers' Conference

Norms in Conflict

2nd Annual Graduate Conference by the Cluster of Excellence
3-5 December 2010

Plakat NachwuchskonferenzDisputes over culture, collective identity, moral concepts, or political convictions are only some examples of how conflicts arise in the course of social transformation. In these conflicts norms are implicitly or explicitly renegotiated and reshaped, while the time, place, course, and extent of these conflicts are themselves shaped by norms. This fundamental interplay between norms and conflicts is the focus of this year’s interdisciplinary graduate conference initiated by the Cluster of Excellence ‘The Formation of Normative Orders’.

The aim of the conference is to examine from both theoretical and empirical perspectives the relationship between norms and conflicts as well as their manifold forms of expression. To this end we have invited graduates from the fields of philosophy, law, political science, history, anthropology, African, Islamic and Scandinavian studies, economics, sociology and theology to engage with us in dialogue.

In a total of 24 interdisciplinary panels we will discuss the interrelationship between norms and conflicts with over 70 graduates from over 35 universities in nine countries.

We look forward to a fruitful and stimulating conference.

The event is open to all interested members of the public. Please register in advance at: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
