OSCE Academy hosts Workshop on Connecting Protest Researchers

On 15-17 May 2023, the OSCE Academy hosted a 3-day research workshop titled “Connecting Protest Research(ers).” The workshop was part of an ongoing research project conducted by Dr. Asel Doolotkeldieva, OSCE Academy, in partnership with Dr. Beate Eschment, Zentrum für Osteuropa- und internationale Studien (ZOiS) in Berlin, and funded by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD).

Scholars from Central Asia and Germany who study the topic of protests and other forms of contentious politics took part in the event. During the three days, participants had an opportunity to present their research projects and discuss empirical cases as well as methodological and ethical challenges related to protest research in non-Western contexts.
