Online release of research documentary «Inequality and Conflict – Beyond us and them»
This film is the product of a two-year synthesis process of participatory filmmaking spanning boundaries between places and people and their different knowledges and experiences in working through inequality and conflict. The contributions of non-academic partners in the role of protagonists, sharing their life experiences, as well as the images of inequality created connections between contexts, scales, concepts and research results that were not there before. The documentary contextualises findings and presents solutions for more peaceful, just and inclusive societies as stated in the sustainable development goal SDG16 of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Selected results emerging from the diverse methodological approaches of three research projects on dealing with and mitigating social conflicts across the globe connect with and complement each other.
The documentary tells stories and makes research findings accessible for diverse professional audiences and an interested public. Watch in YouTube.
