Over the course of the two-day workshop, Ursula Schröder, Sina Birkholz, and Tilmann Scherf of project C6 discussed numerous presentations on the workshop’s topic with participants from Germany and abroad. These contributions provided alternative perspectives on international interventions, statehood, and (in)security, going beyond dominant interpretations and narratives from the Global North on international statebuilding and security interventions in the Global South. Participants approached the topic from many different theoretical and methodological perspectives. Among other things, they examined the dynamics of knowledge production about international interventions, new methodical and methodological approaches for research on international interventions, and the often divergent perspectives and conflictive dynamics of interaction between the interveners and `the intervened´ upon.
