Conflict and Security


Conflict and Security

The Conflict and Security Research Cluster includes researchers from a wide range of disciplines, including political science, history, geography, sociology, education and economics (with growing links to researchers in the STEM fields). The cluster undertakes to foster linkages among BSIA students and faculty with an interest conflict (and conflict resolution) research, facilitate debate and dialogue within the BSIA community on key contemporary issues of conflict and security, and encourage collaborative research across these areas. Through research, events, and publications, the cluster seeks to enhance the profile of the BSIA as a leading research centre – recognized both domestically and internationally – for the study of peace, conflict and security.
