  1. 1. Politics of Affection : Ex-Combatants, Political Engagement and Reintegration Programs in Liberia

    Abstract : Ex-combatants' relationship with post-war politics is crucial for the continued democratization and peace processes, irrespective of what has shaped it: the war or their post-war experiences. In this thesis, the relationship with politics, after the end of the Liberian civil war (1989-2003) is explored among ex-combatants, following the research question: How do ex-combatants in Liberia think about politics and how do they engage in politics? Demobilization, Disarmament and Reintegration (DDR) programs are a large component of contemporary peacebuilding efforts that target ex-combatant populations. READ MORE

  2. 2. Dangerous Liaisons : Why Ex-Combatants Return to Violence. Cases from the Republic of Congo and Sierra Leone

    Author : R. Anders Nilsson; Thomas Ohlson; Kristine Höglund; Mats Hammarström; Joanna Spear; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; ex-combatants; reintegration; demobilization; DDR; conflict resolution; peacebuilding; civil wars; Republic of Congo; Sierra Leone; Peace and conflict research; Freds- och konfliktforskning;

    Abstract : After disarming and demobilizing, why do some ex-combatants re-engage in organized vio-lence, while others do not? Even though former fighters have been identified as a major source of insecurity in post-civil war societies due to their military know-how, there have been few efforts to systematically examine this puzzle. This study fills this research gap by comparing the presence or absence of organized violence in different ex-combatant communi-ties – all the former fighters that used to belong to the same armed faction and who share a common, horizontal identity based on shared war-and peacetime experiences.

  3. 3. DNA Damage Response of Normal Epidermis in the Clinical Setting of Fractionated Radiotherapy : Evidence of a preserved low-dose hypersensitivity response

    Author : Fredrik Qvarnström; Ingela Turesson; Gunilla Enblad; Mats Harms-Ringdahl; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; DNA damage response; low-dose hypersensitivity; dose response; normal tissue; epidermis; keratinocyte; fractionated radiotherapy; DNA double strand break; DSB; foci; γH2AX; 53BP1; checkpoint; p21; apoptosis; mitosis; Oncology; Onkologi; Oncology; onkologi;

    Abstract : Investigations of DNA damage response (DDR) mechanisms in normal tissues have implications for both cancer prevention and treatments. The accumulating knowledge about protein function and molecular markers makes it possible to directly trace and interpret cellular DDR in a tissue context. READ MORE

  4. 4. The role of cellular RNA processing functions in Human papillomavirus type 16 gene regulation

    Author : Kersti Nilsson; Avdelningen för medicinsk mikrobiologi; []
    Keywords : RNA Splicing; Polyadenylation; DNA damage response; Human papillomavirus; Influenza A;

    Abstract : AbstractInfections with Human papillomavirus type 16 (HPV16) is the most the most common, sexually transferred and is responsible for genital warts, cervical cancers and a growing number of head and neck cancers. Knowledge about how HPV16 interacts with the infected cell to regulate its gene expression is essential for therapeutic development. READ MORE

    Abstract : The structure, function and accessibility of epidermal skin provide aunique opportunity to study the DNA damage response (DDR) of a normaltissue. The in vivo response can be examined in detail, at a molecularlevel, and further associated to the structural changes, observed at atissue level. READ MORE
