The Conflict in Cities Briefing Papers consolidate findings from a decade of research on over ten divided cities. They present a concise presentation of key findings of the Conflict in Cities and the Contested State research project on cross-cutting themes that concern city and state, including: education, heritage, localism, regeneration, religion, security, infrastructures, shared space, and the urban everyday. The papers are available on the project website, and have been distributed to policy makers, urban and architectural practitioners, journalists, NGOs, think tanks, and academics who want a quick overview. I worked as a researcher and editor on this series of publications.
Cappadocia Restoration Guidelines
Fashioned as a guidebook for the residents of the region of Cappadocia, a UNESCO World Heritage site in Turkey, I prepared this booklet following six months of field work in the region. The goal of this publication is to provide basic information to the average Cappadocian village dweller about how to approach maintenance and restoration projects for their homes and businesses. The information is presented in comprehensible language with clear graphics and diagrams. Distributed in the region, this booklet was designed to be an integral part of the process of the conservation of the rapidly eroding heritage of Cappadocia.
