Welcome to the York Centre for Conflict and Security (YCCS), a major new interdisciplinary centre for research and practice examining Global Security Challenges and the causes of international and civil conflicts around the world.
Our researchers study a wide range of topics including nuclear proliferation, global health security, peacebuilding after civil wars, political violence, gender, and terrorism. Led by the Department of Politics, with partners worldwide we use interdisciplinary and innovative approaches to tackle security challenges across the Globe.
Our team have worked with a wide range of policy-makers, think-tanks, charities and practitioners, including the UN, the Foreign Office, the EU, and RUSI. Below we showcase.
The Centre hosts lectures, workshops and seminar series relating to all aspects of inter and intra-state conflict throughout the year. We have had invited speakers from around the world to talk about their work investigating conflict and security.
All our academics are actively engaged in research examining issues relating to conflict and security. Find out what’s happening in YCCS.
