Political Science

Political science seeks to answer big type of questions like: Why do wars exist? Why do people join together to form states? but also seeks answer in the more local and mundane, like finding out why people voted a certain way in the municipal elections.

Peace and Conflict Studies

Research in peace and conflict studies is multidisciplinary, comprising disciplines such as political science, international law, intelligence analysis, history, social anthropology and economic history.

Intelligence Analysis

Intelligence studies is an inter-disciplinary subject that addresses various aspects of states’ intelligence activities – for example, how the collection and analysis of intelligence is organized; under what circumstances states fail to foresee and prevent threats.
