Research projects

Peace building revolves around the sum of multiple Peace generators, among which, the treatment of Life Stories as a contribution to Peace, may be found. To deepen our understanding of these Life Stories and question the manner in which they are conceived and collected is currently one of the great scientific and social challenges, especially in divided societies, a social challenge for our past, present and future.
