Markus Balázs Göransson has just completed his thesis for his MA in Conflict Studies and Human Rights. The title of his research is "The Power of Peace Pacts in Struggle: The role of the bodong system in the Kalingas’ mobilisation against the Chico River Dam project in the Cordillera Mountains, the Philippines."
Meanwhile, Tom Kips is delivering a public lecture on the decline of Kalinga tattooing tradition on 8 October 2009 at the CSC Research Laboratory (see below). Tom is pursuing his MA in Cultural Anthropology.
