The Conflict, Peace & Security research group produces cutting-edge work on violent conflicts, within and between states, and other global security challenges. We have a large PhD community and we host the MA in Peace and Conflict Studies.
Our research projects cover:
We focus on the causes, consequences and responses to such challenges. Our research often takes a non-traditional approach, focusing for example on illiberal peace-building, non-state and rebel governance, small-state mediation, controlling the means of violence, the ethics of covert warfare, border politics, and securitisation.
Our research is applied as well as theoretical and we have extensive area-expertise covering the Middle East, Southeast Asia, South Asia, the Pacific, Sub-Saharan Africa, Latin America and the former Soviet Union.
We have received prestigious and highly competitive funding from a number of donors - including the Economic and Social Research Council, the British Academy, Leverhulme, the Wellcome Trust, the World Peace Foundation, and the Independent Social Research Fund - and we work with major international stakeholders and think tanks, such as UNICEF, UNIDIR, UNDP, the World Bank, The Asia Foundation, Conciliation Resources, the Berghof Foundation, and the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.
