Cumberland Lodge

Bursary to attend Resilient Communities Conference

Cumberland Lodge is offering bursary places for PhD students to attend this conference examining resilient communities.

This Conference explores thought-provoking, challenging and innovative examples that can lead the way towards more inclusive forms of community life and opportunities for shared commitments in the wake of events or developments that fracture and divide local populations. Questions asked will include:

  • How can social cohesion be fostered to create communities which are more robust and resilient to such disruptive events?
  • How can fractured communities be brought back together and reconfigured in their wake?
  • How can different actors – state, civil society, local people and others – collaborate and respond to conflict and decline, whilst promoting positive trajectories for the future?
