About this book

This book presents narratives of the social use of space in the divided city of Mostar, Bosnia-Herzegovina. Through the narratives of movement in the city, the work demonstrates how residents engage informally with conflict transformation through new movement and use of spaces. This book will appeal across the social sciences, and in particular to students, academics, and researchers in the fields of peace and conflict studies, political sociology, and human geography.

About the authors

Susan Forde is an Associate Lecturer in International Relations at the University of York, UK. Dr Forde’s research is based in the field of peacebuilding and post-conflict studies, with a focus on conflict transformation, space, agency and participatory approaches to research.

Reviews

“Forde’s book is not only empirically rich and visually powerful, but it also provides a dynamic understanding of the city as a space of conflict transformation. It takes movement through the Bosnian city of Mostar as an indicator of social agency and thus elegantly reflects on the extent to which peace happens in the everyday life in urban landscapes. Forde succeeds in providing a close reading of Mostar’s urban landscape to highlight previously undocumented processes of conflict transformation. Within the ‘spatial turn’ of International Relations as well as Peace and Conflict Studies, this will be a key reference point in the literature.” (Dr Stefanie Kappler, Durham University)

“This important book successfully bridges peace and conflict research with human geography to advance the spatialising peace and conflict research agenda. Drawing on recent theoretical developments Susan Forde brings new insights to spatially situated peacebuilding agency. The book’s detailed research from the city Mostar with its reflective methodology breaks new empirical ground. Thus, the book provides key theoretical and empirical knowledge to the study of divided city, to analysis of transitions from war to peace and to our understanding of post-war reconstruction. As such it makes a critical and valuable contribution to the field of peace and conflict research.” (Professor Annika Björkdahl, Lund University)
