About Peter Halden:
Peter Haldén's research interests fall into three broad categories: (A) The development of political order and orders of warfare, between and within polities; (B) Military organizations; (C) Climate change and war.
Often Peter applies a kind of longue durée research strategy that spans several centuries of European and Asian history. He is also very interested in comparative studies and his studies range from medieval European and Middle Eastern history to contemporary African security. In all of Haldén's research fields he endeavours to use research findings to criticize and enrich fundamental concepts of social theory. Peter's main ambition is to join several disciplinary traditions, most importantly history, sociology and political science – and lately anthropology – in a mutually enriching study of politics and war.
