The OICD SIN Project: OICD Student International Network
By: Sebastien Boret, OICD SIN co-ordinator
Welcome to the students’ forum of OICD! SIN is an attempt to generate discussions and provide information regarding research of conflicts by and for students. When accepting to become the co-ordinator of OICD international students, my first motivation was, and still is, to offer a cross-cultural network for anthropological fieldwork of conflict (see OICD.net) where students, from pre- to post- fieldwork could share their knowledge and unique experiences through OICD’s Students International Network.
How can you Participate in the OICD SIN Project?
In order to progressively but actively develop OICD SIN, we invite each of you to: 1) post comments and suggestions regarding OICD SIN project and 2) become a represent of your region. Although it seems early to identify how detailed OICD SIN’s distribution will be, we invite each of you to represent one of the following: United States of America, Canada, South America, Europe, Africa, and Asia. Each representing student will be encourage to diffuse information about OICD and OICD SIN, provide update information regarding the latest events (e.g. conferences and workshops), and finally encourage students of his/her region to consult and e-mail comments/contributions to OICD SIN!
In other words, we hope that the OICD SIN project will develop in to a forum where we will be able to stimulate and participate in discussion regarding specific issues that surround research and fieldwork, announce recent publications, offer the possibility to link students and professionals, and finally stimulate future research projects towards conflict resolution!
We look forward to receiving your comments and suggestions to improve the OICD SIN project, volunteer as OICD SIN representing student, or simply communicate your interest in OICD.
The forum is hosted on the OICD facebook page discussion board.
Thank you all for your attention.
