Dahlia Simangan 

Associate Professor, Hiroshima University 

Research under ORA7 project 

I use critical inquiry and qualitative methods to study various dimensions of post-conflict reconstruction to inform peacebuilding research and practice. My research in post-conflict peacebuilding covers security, justice and reconciliation, and economic development mandates of UN transitional administrations in Cambodia, Kosovo, and Timor-Leste. More recently, my peacebuilding research focuses on the urban and environmental dimensions of post-conflict reconstruction, such as in the Philippines, Nepal, and Afghanistan.
