Peace and Conflict

The field of peace and conflict conducts interdisciplinary research to advance knowledge about war, conflict management and peacebuilding.

The cluster group on peace and conflict research (PCR) conducts several research projects on a broad range of issues related to conflict analysis, democracy, ethics, war, peacebuilding, security, reconciliation, identity, conflict resolution, gender and peace negotiations.

The researchers focus both on global patterns as well as regions and countries, such as Western Balkans, Asia, European Union, Middle East, Northern Ireland, Sweden and Denmark.
