IFSH peace researcher Dr. Anna Kreikemeyer presented her conceptual reflections on ethnographic research on local orders, which she had published in a special issue. The colleagues involved in the volume, Dr. Aksana Ismailbekova, Zentrum Moderner Orient, Berlin and Dr. Karolina Kluczewska, Centre for Global Cooperation Research, University Duisburg-Essen as well as Vadim Romashov from Tampere Peace Research Institute presented results of their field research in Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Georgia. The engaged discussion showed once again how motivating, stimulating and uncomplicated a civil society exchange between peace researchers from Europe, Russia and Central Asia can be and which cooperation possibilities the instrument of videoconferencing offers.
