As part of ADA’s working group on state fragility, Dr Jan Pospisil presented the Political Settlement Research Programme to an Austrian expert audience. Jan has recently joined the PSRP Programme as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow based in the School of Law at The University of Edinburgh.
At the meeting in Vienna on 3 July 2015, representatives from ADA, the Austrian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Defence, and several NGOs were on hand to discuss the scope and the work-streams of the programme. Of particular interest were the linkages of conceptual research and implementation, as well as the interrelations of the project with donor activities within the respective DAC fora (in particular INCAF). Follow-up activities with ADA at later stages of the PRSP have been agreed upon.
