On 18-19 September, we arranged a panel at the CRS Annual Conference 2017, Ending Violence in Turbulent Times: Exploring the Conflict, Peace, and Violence Nexus, hosted by the Changing Character of War Programme, Pembrooke College, University of Oxford.

The panel was titled "Resolving Religious Conflicts? Exploring the Termination of Religiously Defined Armed Conflicts", and we presented ongoing project-related research on the termination patterns of Islamist conflicts, civil resistance against jihadist proto-states, and dialogue with the Pakistani Taliban. We wish to thank the organizers for an excellent conference and the discussants for great comments on our papers!
