Aim: to disrupts essentialist representations of the Global South as a place of permanent crisis by attempting to re-imagine spaces of post-conflict violence in Liberia as simultaneously being communities of love weaving dignity into our understanding of violence in conflict-affected spaces.
• To provide a better understanding of the tensions between international and national investment aimed at addressing post-conflict violence and gender equality in Liberia
• To develop a deeper understanding of the global politics of intervention, violence, and love in post-conflict environments, through an exploration of post-war Liberia, as a means to promote best practice in gender equality, peace and justice policy and programming
• To use participatory research design and methods, rooted in the narratives of community members, particularly women survivors of conflict related violence, to develop practical tools to encourage and support the use of alternative program design and evaluation methods such as Appreciative Inquiry in Liberia

The aim of the project is to take advantage of the ‘natural experiment’ presented by the implementation of the selective licensing scheme in the London Borough of Hackney to conduct a three-pronged evaluation consisting of an (1) impact evaluation, (2) process evaluation, and (3) economic evaluation.
Objectives for the process evaluation are to assess: a. Implementation data focused on inspections, home improvements required, compliance, enforcement, and vulnerable tenants, b. The development and implementation of the scheme, as well as the values underpinning it, c. Landlords’ views of and compliance with the scheme, and d. Tenants’ views of and experiences with the scheme.
Outputs include publications in high-impact journals, conference presentations, and a photography exhibition including a launch event with tenants, policy makers and interested stakeholders attending.
