Example text

18 C r o s s i ng B ou n da r i e s du r i ng P e ac e a n d C on f l ic t In processes of social practice, collective identity categories such as gender and ethnicity are interrelated in interpretation, meanings, and values. The focus has changed through recent developments of the constructivist research agenda from the “categories of identification” to a discussion of the meanings and contents of identity categories (Cornell, 1996; Jenkins, 2008; Todd, 2005). Personal narratives allow us to reveal the mentally represented story that an individual person has developed regarding the “self” and the social category in question.

Questions arising in this context are: How do certain identities become important for individuals? How are they triggered? How and when do identities lose their significance? Individuals vary in the way they experience the sense of belonging within a particular identity category in different situations and at different moments in time. In order to make sense of the differing contents and processes of collective identification, I will look at collective identity in historical time. This enables me to trace patterns of change and to explore how the individual frames identity contents in each phase of the conflict and conflict settlement process.

Following Brubaker (Brubaker & Cooper, 2004, Brubaker, Feischmidt, Fox & Grancea, 2006), we need to problematize the relationship between a category and a group in order to explore the various meanings of this group solidarity. In order to explore the meaning of identity, more qualitative forms of inquiry are required in this research, namely semi-structured in-depth interviews to elicit detailed individual and historical narratives of time and place. 6 Many different approaches, frameworks, and definitions of the term have led to questioning the use of the term identity (Brubaker & Cooper, 2004).
