Over the past few months Shabka has undergone a big transformation process. We have expanded our aspiration when it comes to informing you critically and tackling mainstream information. We have established new rooms to exchange views. We have introduced new formats to bridge theory and practice.
In doing so, we have found new ways of making our ideas visible and accessible to a wider public. By widening our base, our online Journal and the Shabka Exchange now find themselves in the midst of other new projects.
Among them is our new Salon Shabka that opens a space for political and societal discussion. It’s a space off the beaten track of hectic and hurried public discourses that favor dominant mainstream arguments. Instead, the Salon is intense. It’s controversial. Sophisticated. Deliberative. It offers you a detailed and critical context to the complexity of what is happening around us.
Another new pillar is the Voices project that connects knowledge of established peace researchers and practitioners to a wider public. In digging out acknowledged expertise and making it come to life, it enables you to learn about concepts, challenges and possibilities of peace and conflict analyses. Further, Shabka’s Voices project gives you the opportunity to get to know the people who ask today’s uncomfortable questions.
