Central Research Question: How do peace simulations, as a form of peacemaking, produce and affect contemporary subjectivities of peace?

My research project concentrates on the impact of new technology, specifically the use of simulations, on peacemaking. Broadly speaking, this is an effort to come to terms with how the increased use of new technology shapes political thinking and concepts. The aim is to analyse and foster innovations in contemporary training for and practices of peacemaking.
